Election 2020-The lesser of two evils, R-U Ready? Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


Election 2020 is just 5 days away and with so much happening in the country, this election is pivotal in the middle of a global pandemic. Over a half million Americans have already cast their vote in a race that’s been pitted between a divide in parties. One party rolling in denial of this global pandemic, while others are living it according to the CDC guidelines religiously

The president continues to stoop to new lows to undermine the American people concerning this election, from voter fraud to mail-in voting fraud, to we’re turning the corner of this pandemic to creating scandals and narratives with no factual evidence. The stakes are high and the drama is real.

The electoral system has long been broken. And while voting for the lesser of two evils is a necessary act in this election process, of greater importance is the need to rethink and reshape the societal structures that force us to make such an offensive decision in the first place. 

Join our host, Ms. Tracy L. Bell on “Conversations Of A Sistah” at 6:30 p.m. EST for our topic “Election 2020-The lesser of 2 evils, R-U Ready?

We hope to see 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!

Substance Abuse & Mental Health Issues – Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


Dealing with substance abuse, alcoholism, or drug addiction is never easy, and it’s even more difficult when you’re also struggling with mental health issues in addition.

In co-occurring disorders, both the mental health issue and the drug or alcohol addiction have their own unique symptoms that may get in the way of your ability to function at work or school and/or even to maintain a stable home life. These disorders can develop when you can’t handle life’s difficulties and relate to others. To make the situation more complicated, the co-occurring disorders also affect each other. When a mental health problem goes untreated, the substance abuse problem usually gets worse. Both conditions can lead to detrimental outcomes.

Join our host Ms. Tracy L. Bell at 6:30 p.m. EST on “Conversations Of A Sistah” with her special guest in our studio “Dr. Brianna Gaynor” (pictured left), Director of Peace of Mind Psychological Services as they sit down in our studios to discuss “Substance Abuse & Mental Health Issues

“Has Religion Brainwashed Black People into Forgiving?” Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


Black people didn’t know what to think after Botham Jean’s brother hugged the former Dallas cop who took his brother’s life in a deadly case of mistaken identity.

Last Tuesday a jury convicted Amber Guyger of murder in the fatal shooting of her upstairs neighbor. She claimed she mistook his apartment for her own after working a 13-hour shift on Sept. 6, 2018.

Prosecutors showed the jury racist text messages and racially offensive memes on Guyger’s social media accounts.

Guyger, 31, was sentenced to 10 years in prison on Wednesday, Oct. 2.

During his victim impact testimony, Jean’s brother, Brandt Jean told Guyger, who is white, that he forgives her and didn’t want her to go to prison. “I love you as a person, and I don’t wish anything bad on you,” Brandt said.

After his testimony, Brandt gave Guyger an emotional embrace that stunned social media.

There was more odd behavior in the courtroom. A Black bailiff was seen stroking and primping Guyger’s hair after her guilty verdict was announced.

The courtroom behavior angered many and confused others.

Join us at 6:30 p.m. EST on “Conversations of A Sistah” via Blog Talk Radio for our discussion on “Has Religion Brainwashed Black People into Forgiving?

Social Media Ban, Tracy L. Bell, Tracy L. Bell - Blog Talk Radio, Tracy L. Bell Host Conversations Of A Sistah

“When the media controls the narrative” Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


Last week Facebook and Instagram banned, the honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan from its platform.

The controversial Nation of Islam minister, was among several conservative voices banned from the social media platforms for being “dangerous,” according to Facebook’s ruling.

While there are some extreme voices dominating the social media platform, the same can be said for the voices and images on television. But because the media controls the narrative, they control the platforms.

Minister Farrakhan is the leader of the Nation of Islam which is considered a hate group. The Southern Poverty Law Center cited Farrakhan as “deeply racist, anti-Semitic and anti-LGBT.” Farrakhan’s Facebook page was deleted and all of its content purged from the social media giant’s servers, along with the social media pages of his religious organization.

“We’ve always banned individuals or organizations that promote or engage in violence and hate, regardless of ideology. The process for evaluating potential violators is extensive and it is what led us to our decision to remove these accounts today.”

Join host Tracy L. Bell tonight at 6:30 p.m. EST on “Conversations of A Sistah” for our commentary “When the media controls the narrative“.
