Protest but No Plan, Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


Since the senseless murders of two unarmed black men at the hands of police, the outrage has sparked protesting and demonstrations across the country.

The death of Alton Sterling, a 37-year-old father-of-5 was selling CDs outside a Baton Rouge convenience store when he was killed by 2 cops early last Wednesday. And 32-year-old Philando Castile, a Minnesota cafeteria worker who was shot to death on Wednesday by a milquetoast cop during a routine traffic stop.

We’ve seen such tragedies far too many times, and people are angry and outraged because “enough is enough!”

The cries for justice has been ignored far too long! So what is the clear path to justice? What are the steps for action and purpose of these many demonstrations that have been taken to the streets?

Join me at 6:30 p.m. EST on “Conversations Of A Sistah” via blog talk radio for tonight’s conversations and topic of discussion “Protest but No Plan”, with my special guests (pictured above); author, activist and black panther member Ms. Karen Tucker and Dr. Obari Cartman author and justice advocate.

We will be taking your calls and comments in the studio at 1-917-889-7872.

Conversations Of A Sistah, Tracy L. Bell - Blog Talk Radio, Women's History Month

Prayer… how has it impacted women in history? on “Conversations Of A Sistah”

Many women in history have contributed their success and many achievements to the power of prayer. Although African slaves worked the cotton fields picking cotton, many times they could be heard singing hymns of praise and prayer despite the hardship from working “sun up until sun down” on different slave plantations. Regardless of their sufferings, trials and tribulations they believed in the power of prayer.

Historically, African-American people have been known to be very spiritual. From the old Negro spirituals sung during slavery, to using prayer as a catalyst for divine intervention during the civil rights movement.

Do you believe prayer is divine intervention? How has prayer sustained your well being or those women from your generation?

“Brown Little Me” Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”

In today’s society the idea of what is deemed beauty or beautiful is distorted, leaving many young African American women still struggling with the challenge of their looks. Yes the light skin vs. dark skin colorism is still an issue and conversation which is uncomfortable for some and a curse in thought by many.

In many parts of the world, people are judged not just by their skin color but also by their skin tone. The devaluing of dark-skinned women is still an issue not just in the black community alone but the issue is extremely pervasive in mainstream America as well.

Join me tonight at 8:00 P.M. on “Conversations Of A Sistah” in our continued celebration of Black History month on “Conversations Live” as I welcome Karen Tucker (pictured below), author of the children’s book “Brown Little Me“, a love letter to the little girl inside of her; who struggled with the many issues of identity, fitting-in and self-acceptance.

Karen_Tucker

As an African American woman, Tucker has always had a lifelong battle with understanding, that while having brown skin has so many benefits; there also seems to be resentment for it on so many levels. Ranging from racism to the destructiveness of self hate and complexion complexes, from these struggles “Brown Little Me” came to be.
