At the age of 3 Gloria and her 5-year-old brother Charles moved with their parents to the west coast, however, due to redlining, restrictive convenants, and racial steering, they were forced to move to Russell City. Her family lived on Russell Road/Winton Avenue where 2 other siblings were born. She attended Russell School, Hayward High, and Oakland City College.
