Mrs. Linda Smith (audio coming soon)

Mrs. Smith is an active member of Gillfield Baptist Church and started the gospel choir at Gillfield. She is an alumna of Peabody High School, graduating just a couple of years before integration, when Peabody was converted to a Middle School. She picketed downtown Petersburg in her youth, to protest segregation. She is a retired teacher of Petersburg and currently looks after her mother, who turned 100 this year.

About the photo: Taken in the sanctuary of Gillfield Baptist Church. Mrs. Smith was not aware that I would be taking photos that Sunday; she is just an impeccable dresser.
