About

Dr. Charles A. Tindley's Church - grew up in slave family.

Charles Tindley (1851-1933) grew up in a slave family where his mother was free and father was a slave. His life was part of a sermon today at Supplee Presbyterian Church. Anxious to learn, he found ways to educate himself, often with help from others, and eventually became pastor of this church, where he was once the janitor. His story is online and it is fascinating and inspirational.
