DearSis, is an invitation for conversation.


  • The Doctor Is In!

    This week, MJ sits with Dr. Cynthia Alease Smith, Ed.D. to talk about racism. Dr. Alease Smith defines racism as "the systematic subjugation within an established institution, through structurally designed denial and limited portions of opportunity, equity, equality, and justice, to control the formerly enslaved and their descendants, after enslavement ended and reconstruction failed." She is an anti-racism essayist and educator, a writer, novelist and editor, specializing in literary contemporary fiction, nonfiction stories inspired by real events, and occasional ghostwriting.
