This weeks ‘news and Events’ on Conversations Of A Sistah


A person who later learned they were positive for Covid-19 attended a California religious service on Mother’s Day, exposing 180 other people to the novel corona-virus, according to local health officials. Corona Virus is still in the land yet states are opening little by little, slowly lifting their stay at home restrictions. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced sweeping re-openings in the state, from child care centers to bars, bowling alleys, rodeos and bingo centers, just days after Texas reported its biggest one-day jump in Covid-19 cases since the pandemic began.

In the meantime President Donald J. Trump announced, on Monday he’s been taking hydroxychloroquine for the past week and a half in case he gets the corona-virus despite warnings from his own administration about the side effects of the anti-malaria drug.

Why are Blacks the most wanted or most haunted? Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


Haunted because the Corona Virus is killing us at an alarming rate and wanted because between racist neighbors and racist cops we’re targeted at an alarming rate.

So why are Black People Most Wanted or Haunted?

Blacks are more likely to be stopped by police, therefore it’s hard to drive while black. We could be killed in our own homes or even jogging in a neighborhood. No matter what we do, we are oftentimes seen as a threat. Viewed and discriminated against because of the color of our skin.

When we talk about rates, rates are important because they take into account each group’s proportion of the population. And blacks make up about 13 percent of the U.S. population, but accounted for 28 percent of arrests, with many more violent altercations..

Why are we the most wanted and why are we the most haunted? Tune into “Conversations Of A Sistah” at 6:30 p.m. EST as we deal with this question.

Hope to meet you on the air.

‘Doulas on Duty’ in this Pandemic, Tonight on Conversations Of A Sistah


Can you imagine being pregnant and due to give birth during this global pandemic?

Having a baby during a pandemic presents its own challenges. And knowing that the United States has the highest maternal mortality rate of any wealthy nation, is something to be concerned about. Especially when you have the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention still saying it doesn’t know how the disease impacts pregnancy and babies.

States and hospitals have mandated fathers cannot be present when the mother gives birth and have minimized them even during routine doctor visits. When you think about the worry of remaining healthy in the midst of this global pandemic, the thought of giving birth in spite of it all can be quite frightening.

Aside from partners, doulas can also offer support virtually during labor and delivery. Meanwhile, pregnant people and new parents are working to cope with this new reality. Despite the many challenges posed by the current crisis, though, many doctors, doulas, and others who work with people giving birth are doing their best to make sure families are still supported.

We hope you’ll tune into the Conversation at 6:30 p.m. EST for our topic of discussion ‘Doulas on Dutyin this Pandemic on tonight’s Conversations Of A Sistah. Our special guest in the studio is Ann Marie Pusterla, Doula, (pictured left) Founder and CEO of “Love your Labor

Hope you’ll tune into this interesting conversation!

Corona Virus Reigns, so who’s to blame? Tonight’s Topic on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


BEIJING, CHINA – JANUARY 30: Chinese children wear plastic bottles as makeshift homemade protection and protective masks while waiting to check in to a flight at Beijing Capital Airport on January 30, 2020 in Beijing, China.

In the past three weeks since declaring the corona virus a national emergency, President Donald Trump has delivered a dizzying array of rhetorical contortions, sowed confusion and repeatedly sought to cast blame on others. He has faulted governors for acting too slowly, the democrats by claiming it’s a hoax and China because after-all, it’s their virus.

America is winning its war on corona-virus, the president says — yet the death toll is still rising, and in the best case scenario more Americans will die than in the wars fought in Vietnam, Korea, Afghanistan and Iraq combined.

Instead of real leadership from the current administration, all we’re hearing and seeing is a COMMANDER OF CONFUSION!! This president continues to sow uncertainty and seeks to cast blame in the midst of this deadly crisis.

Join us at 6:30 p.m. EST for this weeks conversation, Corona Virus Reigns – so who’s  to Blame?”

We will be taking your calls in the studio at 516-595-8098, hope to meet you on the air!!
