Up Close and Personal with Sistah's Place2
Someone asked me during an interview, how did you come up with the name "Sistah's Place2"? I responded that, growing up it was always a thrill to go over to Sistah's place to get advice about relationships, neighborhood gossip, family facts, and learn about our history as black people. She always had pearls of wisdom and knowledge to give you that one day you find yourself telling to your children. Sistah was the house everyone wanted to go to because she always had something sweet waiting for you as she baked apple pie, sweet potato pie, and chocolate cake. Sistah is a southern nickname given to some women that grew up in the south, like myself. I even had the nickname Sistah growing up.
As I was thinking about a name for my business and blog, I thought about the journey we always took over to "Sistah's Place" every month. It helped me to form the vision in my head of having brothers and sisters coming over to my place to share their stories and talk about their journey. A vision that was a dream to have talented men and women come over to "Sistah's Place2" to talk about their projects and inspirations in television and film. I imagined 'Sistah's Place2" to be a place where dreams are shared, advice is given, encouragement is present in their story, and relationships are built on truth,trust, and respect. A place where aspiration meets inspiration. With the vision in mind, that Celebrity Spotlight will encourage and inspire someone to chase their dreams in the television and film. Hint, the name "Sistah's Place2" was born July 1, 2014. The birth of our Author Showcase came about in November 2014. So we cannot forget the journey as an author. For some that journey was a long time before they would give birth to their first novel.

It's purpose is to entertain, inspire, and encourage a dreamer to pursue their dreams and goals by interviewing and featuring talented men and women who have traveled that journey. Their struggle and experience can be a lesson and motivation for others aspiring to have a career in television,film, and publishing.
I am passionate about Sistah's Place2 position and platform of showcasing talented Black men and women in television, film, and publishing. Sistah's Place2 is here to provide a service to the community of Inspiration, Empowerment, Hope, Support, and Love.
With the re-branding of Sistah's Place2 in February, separating the Entertainment showcase from the Blog Corner has made a big difference with expanding and growing our audience.
