CoMo Famous: To Sir, with Love - presented by Martha Pickens
With a hidden talent of making up new lyrics on the spot, Martha has learned that a good sense of humor and a compassionate listening ear will get you a long way. She may not have a favorite of Columbia’s MANY pizza joints, but will likely pair it with an IPA.
A Columbia native who grew up in East Campus in the ‘60s, Martha’s early aspirations were to own a VW Bug and attend college so that she could march in civil rights protests. The Bug never happened, but a lot of other stuff did, things that 6-year-old Martha could never have fathomed. When you’re young and your world is narrow, you need someone to help you along. TO SIR, WITH LOVE, gives us that story.
