Thank you for sharing Sister Tisdale's poetry in this article. She is a talented writer, and her poems are truly inspiring! Proud to know her and fellowship with Sister Tisdale at Capitol Hill SDA Church!

We were happy to share it!:)

Growing up in Mobile Alabama, it seemed as if Alabama was "ground zero" in the Freedom Struggle. Great poem and thanks for remembering and living The Dream!

Sis. Tisdale is a creative and talented poet! She uses the medium to speak truth to power and has been a blessing to all who hear her words. We truly adore her and have been inspired by her gift!
