Welcome to sistellablack.com - a digital altar space - featuring my art, poetry, writing, community & scholarly work - which I am guided to do through the blood, sweat & wildest dreams of my ancestors. My maternal grandmother's middle name is Sistella. Her mother, my great grandmother's last name is Black. Sistella Black is a renaming and affirming of self, my warrior spirit, and to rememory the maternal line of Black women who raised me up in fyah. Sistella Black is rebirth, survival & abundance in joy.
