Now in its second printing, Lord, I’m Dancin’ As Fast As I Can has enjoyed national and international acclaim for the moving intensity her poems present. Poignant and persuasive, tender and agonizing, Sistah Joy continues to give us a voice that is seasoned and powerful.

Like most poets of color, this vibrant African- American woman proudly celebrates her heritatge. Mournful and celebratory, her poetic excursion moves us from the old homeland to the new urban states. Sistah Joy takes us deeper as she paints a landscape of special situations that only a Black woman in America can give testimony to.

Sistah Joy brings us humor and love, and a delectable spirituality that embraces readers lifting them to new altitudes and attitudes.


Selected works include, "My Fine Chocolate Brother", "Strong Hands of Mother Africa", "With Honors", "Pork Chops and Twinkies", and "My Soul Shouts Out Loud", which is also the title of Sistah Joy's upcoming book.

Joy is available for speaking, poetry readings, and special events.

Professional Reviews

Dorothy Gilliam; Washington Post Journalist
“The book’s depth lies in Alford’s clear understanding of what it means to be rooted on Africa while grounded in experience as a Black woman. Alford shows a responsive and receptive heart.”

E. Ethelbert Miller; Howard University Director of Resource Center; Author, Speaker, Poet
“Joy’s world is filled with positive thoughts and praise songs. Joy is wise, wonderful, and beautiful. She is a pioneer poet who will lead us into to the new world.

Dale Allen; Publisher, Thelemaque Publishing
“Sistah Joy makes an eloquent and breathtaking presentation.”
