    Episode #38: The System Is Broken!

    Thank you Felecia Pullen for allowing me to use my platform to spread this powerful message. It speaks to the injustice that we as African Americans in this country have endured for hundreds of years. This is a direct message to anyone who considers themselves to be an ally. The goal of the message is to educate you with an attempt of bringing us closer together. It may not be easy to listen to but it is where OUR healing begins. 


    Take a moment to read about the tragic stories of each of these beautiful souls.

Host Kimberly Sumpter's Voice is Golden

Sistahs Connect is such a joy to catch. Kimberly really cares about her guests and it shows in her interview questions. Don't miss this chance to listen to some positivity!

Smooth and Empowering

I was just introduced to this podcast and I love it. As I listen to Kimberly’s voice I am immediately transported to a relaxed space but this audio-invoked journey does not end there but instead is enhanced by the inspiring and empowering women she has as guests. I listened. I learned. I appreciated it all. This feels like a community rather than just a show. You want to connect with these women of excellence by the time this journey ends. I look forward to enjoying more episodes and sharing with other Sistahs who need this kind of connection.
Cheers!
