This week, 2018 OSI Community Fellow Shelley Halstead was a virtual guest on the Kelly Clarkson Show. Halstead started Black Women Build Baltimore, which trains Black women in construction skills like plumbing, electrical, and carpentry by restoring vacant and deteriorating houses in West Baltimore, which the women then have an option to buy. She was on the show to help kick off Clarkson’s #BeTheDifference campaign, which aims to “amplify Black voices and offer opportunities to Black business and community changemakers.”
Halstead was joined by Quanshay Henderson, the program’s first participant and new homeowner.
