He left us with the legacy “A photo is worth a thousand words” He lived in the Twin Cities for awhile.One of his first job was with the MSR Newspaper in Minneapolis. I will forever “treasure” the photo we took together at the History Center in St. Paul MN.on one of his visits. Thanks, Rosa Bogar

Hello, Mr. Tisdale just wanted to let you know of my ongoing mission to see some kind of recognition shown to South Carolina’s blacks who migrated to NYC to escape segregation and for a better life. Many contributed greatly toward making NYC this great city! More forthcoming. Thanks Rosa Bogar
I’m excited to share that on Sept.21st at Sylvia’s Restaurant in Harlem NY I presented a plaque in the spirit of Sylvia Woods “Queen of Soul Food”and countless blacks who migrated from South Carolina for a better life to NYC during the segregated south. Her daughter accepted the plaque with appreciation. “I also had the opportunity to talk about my booklet “South Carolina’s Blacks A Great Migration to New York City.” I hope to bring about more attention to this great insight into our country’s history! This country celebrate immigration why not migration?? Thanks, Rosa Bogar
