Joyce Lewis grew up in Northeast Baltimore, in a house on Argonne Drive; her parents had been among the first to desegregate the neighborhood. She lived there herself for some years, then spent time in Oakland, California, before returning to Baltimore, where she subsequently lost her family home and took to drugs. She is now rehabilitated and living in senior citizen housing. She has a daughter and two grandsons.
