SistaTV Presents: A tale of two cities


This last year, has been one of the hardest, most trying, crazy times in my life. Currently, every single thing about my life is in transition The best way I can describe it is " SistaTV presents: A Tale of Two Cities 2013. " It was the best of times... It was the worst of times..." But what I know to be true for all highs and lows of life is that there is always a lesson... So what have these times of tremendous trouble and terrific triumph taught me? Well... it taught me... ME.... You know, who IS this Senam, girl? Who is this Senam I see shining back at me through videos, pictures, and silly social media postings and in the mirror? Is she real? Real deal Holyfieled. Is she is strong? Unyieldingly so. She is a survivor. She shows up. She delivers. She will fight through hellfire, brimstone, and whatever to get where she needs to be and to get to all the many wonderful places she

Windows to the World


For my seventh or eight birthday ... My very trusting, very Ghanaian, very frustrated from my constant nagging, parents bought me my very own Thirteen inch Zenith Color Television... and as you can tell from the picture above I was very, very happy about it. Television, second only to books, is one of the great loves of my life. I loveddddddd tv and to have my very tv own in my very own room was in my 8-year-old mind... OUTSTANDING. My way older TV-less brothers were understandably not as thrilled. But they obliged and dragged it up the stairs and propped it up on my dresser right next to Rainbow Brite and my pile of Ramona Quimby novels. It was love at first sight. I loved the way the little numbers illuminated in red on the display. I loved the little circle flash it made when it turned off and on and I LOVED all that could be found, seen, and learned from that little black and brown

Bleed…


Last week, while driving I had a spontaneous nosebleed. Driving down Western and just as I passed Foster,  I reached up to swipe what I thought was a slight runny nose caused by Chicago’s weather forecast traveling from -23 to 73 degrees in 3 windy hours.   So when I looked down at my fingertips and saw crimson, I almost crashed the car.   Well that's not true. I didn’t crash from the shock of seeing random blood pouring down my face. Actually, I didn’t swerve or miss a beat. I may have even actually laughed. But in my head, I crashed my mom-mobile right into that Chicago Hot dog stand on the corner of Western and Foster because the gravity of my nose bleeding again was almost too much for me to bear.   I can’t remember how young I was when I first realized that my daddy hit my mommy, my brothers, and I too much. That there was something wrong with the yelling, the

How Not to be a Dick to Your Black friend by Senam SistaTV Amegashie

So ladies and gentlemen I give you.... HOW NOT TO BE A DICK TO YOUR BLACK FRIEND.... Click Here to read the Full Version on XOJane.com GRRRRRR.... Old black wise black lady voice: "Only trouble SistaTV's World is White Folks..." Why do I even have to fucking write this? Oh yeah, because frankly, white people -- Can I call you white people?

Some of you fuck it up because you
