More About Harlem World Magazine
Harlem World Magazine’s editorial approach builds on a 35 year tradition of journalism started by his deceased my uncle Charles Tisdale (right) at the Jackson Advocate. The Jackson Advocate is a strident voice for Mississippians who were poorly represented.
Charlies Tisdale, was born in rural Athens, Alabama on November 7, 1926. one of a family of seventeen children. His father, worked the land until the farm was lost in the Great Depression of the 1930s; thereafter he supported his family through day jobs and yard work. Mr. Tisdale remembers him as a poet and songwriter, an intellectual who read three newspapers every day. Mr. Tisdale’s mother (my grandmother) Winnie was “a stern and courageous woman”, who insisted that her children stand up for their rights. She was a fierce defender of the family who “would shoot in a minute”. In her last letter to Uncle Charlie, she said, “Please send me a new pistol as mine is rusty”. From the time he was 15, he worked the migrant circuit of tobacco farms, especially in Connecticut. However, at 18 he was able to enter college in Memphis, Tennessee, and began working at the Memphis World newspaper.
Mr. Tisdale made a commitment to ensure the newspaper survived Klu Klux Klan bombings, and attacks from media outlets. The paper called it like it saw it, and it was challenging, and chastising.
“… I carry a lot of Mr. Tisdale with me … The biggest gift he gave me was understanding what it meant to be committed to something.” – Ben Jealous, NAACP president
The paper encouraged discourse, critical debate, and understood the importance of having a voice for community ideas in his article “Tisdale’s Topics.”
