Ruth G. Waddy (1909-2003) came to artmaking later in life, during her early fifties, as an effort to build stronger relationships with artists and improve her advocacy skills. As a result, Waddy created artwork in response to the world around her, incorporating political and social commentary related to the Black community to which she belonged in Southern California.
