Anniversary, Conversations Of A Sistah

“Conversations Of A Sistah” Celebrates “6” Years on the air!!! #contestalert

Happy Anniversary to “Conversations Of A Sistah“!!

September 25th commemorates our 6th-year on the air since joining the blog talk radio arena.

As many of you know, the blog talk radio show derived from the title of my autobiography “Conversations Of A Sistah” with Mr. Cyrus Webb of “Conversations Live” as the brain child behind the idea. Since branching off on our own we’ve been gifted with the ability to be creative in our form and a bit more radical with our topic of conversations.

From day 1, my goal was to have bold conversations with true experiences and everyday occurrences, while creating a place and a platform for current conversations.

Today September 25th marks our 6th year Anniversary on the air!!!!!!!

Conversations Of A Sistah first aired on September 25, 2012. And for the first “6” bloggers/and or listeners who can tell me my first “6” show topics in September of that year… will win a free copy of my book “Conversations of A Sistah”

All winners will be announced via this blog on Friday September 28, 2018.

Happy Anniversary to us and “thank you” as always for supporting the show!!!

Bill Cosby

Bill Cosby Arrives at Courthouse for Sentencing Hearing; Could Face Life in Prison

Bill Cosby arrived at the Montgomery County Courthouse on Monday for a two day sentencing hearing that will decide whether he goes home on probation or spends the rest of his life in prison.

The 81-year-old comedian appeared stoic as he entered the courthouse in Norristown surrounded by police officers.

Cosby was convicted of drugging and indecently assaulting Andrea Constand in his home in 2004. More than 60 women have accused Cosby of drugging assaulting them over 4 decades.

The first day of the sentencing hearing will focus on whether Cosby should be classified as a violent sex offender. He will be sentenced on the second day of the hearing.

Constand (the initial accuser) tweeted a Bible verse ahead of the hearing:

“Be wrathful, but do not sin; do not let the sun set while you are still angry; do not give the Devil an opportunity.”

Cosby’s wife Camille Cosby remains supportive of him. In an earlier statement she accused the judge of being biased against her husband.

“Bill Cosby was not afforded an impartial judge and he did not receive a fair trial,” she said. “Instead, my husband was forced to go to trial before a judge, Steven T. O’Neill, who had a bitter, longstanding feud with one of the key witnesses in the case, Bruce Castor.”

Good Cooking, soul food

Thanksgiving came early

It was a family thing on Sunday as we were invited to this Queens home for dinner. This is always an invitation you don’t want to miss when summons to Queen Mamie’s inner court of kitchen and dining. Why? Because this woman can cook!!!!

Known for her tradition of cooking, she always captures the moment and opportunity to gather family and friends around her table of good fixing which is always prepared to perfection and with love.

Although we witnessed part of the meal prep on Saturday nothing compared to the finishing touches met well with taste. When I tell you Thanksgiving came early, please believe me. The shock of it all was met with delight. There was Turkey, gravy, stuffing (to freaking die for), mac and cheese, corn, okra, cabbage, string beans garnished with garlic, yams, corn bread, rolls and pound cake for dessert.

Now anyone who knows soul food, knows that stuffing a.k.a dressing and mac and cheese is pretty much a standard part of the fixings. But Queen Mamie’s dressing and mac and cheese was stacked and layered like a cake and was mouth watering upon taste.

I have never had dressing the way this woman made her dressing yesterday!! The hint of walnuts chopped fine in the mix toppled with her gravy, had me kissing her hands at the taste of such perfection. Each vegetable danced to its own taste, as her cabbage chopped so fine you would miss it when it was met with her string beans that folded to perfection as the garlic garnished danced on-top.

My mom said yesterday “We are all so blessed” knowing women who use their gifts and talents in the kitchen like Queen Mamie to gather friends and family with the love of food, they so effortlessly cook.

The gathering was lovely, the fellowship was real, now can you imagine what her kitchen is like when Thanksgiving day is actually here?

Hail to the Queen she shines all year!!!

‘You don’t belong in this building’: White man pulls GUN on black students at Florida A&M

This is the terrifying moment when a white man pulls out a gun on a group of black students who were waiting for a friend to let them in to his college apartment block.

Footage posted on Twitter shows a man, identified as Don Crandall, blocking the entrance of several black Florida A&M University students to the Stadium Center student accommodation in Tallahassee last Saturday.

In the clip a group of students including Isaiah Butterfield, who filmed the incident, can be seen in a heated conversation with Crandall who at one point pulls out a gun.

Crandall had reportedly confronted the students as they waited outside the block for a friend to let them in to attend a party.

‘Find another elevator, you can’t get in this one,‘ Crandall can be heard saying as he blocks their way into the building.

‘Why not? Do you own the building?‘ the students asked.

‘Because you don’t belong in this building,‘ he replied, before adding, ‘You ain’t got a key for the building, you don’t belong in the elevator.’

Footage of the incident was posted on Twitter by Butterfield and is being investigated by Tallahassee police.

‘We are sick of the discrimination,’ Butterfield wrote alongside the tweet.

‘Never thought I’d have a personal experience with racism like this, this man pulled a gun on us because we were walking up to my friends apartment w/o a key.’

Butterfield later told ABC News he believed Crandall had been trying to ‘provoke’ the students in order to use his weapon.

‘Once we found out he had the gun, it turned into a whole different situation,’ Butterfield said.

‘We really think he was trying to provoke us to the point where it got violent so he could retaliate with the gun. I knew that if this dude even feels threatened, he’s going to find any excuse to pull the trigger.’

Twitter users later identified the man in the video as Crandall, the manager of a local hotel Baymont by Wyndham.

In a post on Instagram, the hotel confirmed his identity and said that he was no longer working there.

A spokesperson for Stadium Center also confirmed that Crandall did not live in the apartment block.

The Baymont by Wyndham hotel confirmed their former manager Don Crandall was the man involved with the incident. Notice they said “FORMER” Crandall was fired immediately.
