Her courage and activism helped end racial discrimination

There are 21 comments on the www.ctpost.com story from Dec 31, 2010, titled Her courage and activism helped end racial discrimination. In it, www.ctpost.com reports that:

Loyse Gilliam Tisdale had two strikes against her in the 1950s. She was female and she was black, neither of which Tisdale used as a crutch in her pursuit for personal excellence in her nearly eight decades on earth.

The Bridgeport native, who later lived in Stratford and Trumbull, was also a Korean War-era veteran, and later in life she became a travel agent and consultant.

She was a great role model because she accomplished so much in her lifetime. A second mother to ...Loyce was involved with Youthbridge, a theatrical arts workshop co-founded by actress June Havoc and Tisdale, who served as the program's director and manager for 13 years. Last week was the first Christmas Eve without Tisdale, who passed away on Oct. 23, but not before leaving an indelible mark on her community and the many people whose lives she enriched.

The black culture is bankrupt, violence, high dropout rates, 70%out of wedlock birth, getting educated is called acting white , glorifying thug culture . Yes, I want to keep far away from it as possible.
