MMSI Celebrating 43 Years of Service
Malik Melodies Sisterhood, Inc.'s continuing Chip & Sip Film Series will host a virtual screening of Alyscia Cunningham's film by Her House Media, "I AM MORE THAN MY HAIR",
From the time we are young, girls are pressured into a set belief of beauty standards. Hair is certainly high on the list and is often labeled as our "crown and glory." Where does this notion fit for females with alopecia (the partial or complete absence of hair from areas of the body where it normally grows)?
I AM MORE THAN MY HAIR, is a documentary film, inspired by the photography book, that includes stories of women who have experienced hair loss due to a health-related condition and their journey of self-empowerment to see beauty beyond the media’s standards.

The Angela Pauling Memorial Scholarship is dedicated to honor MMSI Co-Founder who succumbed
to cancer in 2010. The scholarship is earmarked for a graduating senior at Angela’s alma mater,
Harry S. Truman in the Bronx, NY. We are excited to continue Angela’s legacy with the issuance of
our 10th annual scholarship in 2022. Because of support from donors like you, MMSI issued multiple scholarships for the first time this year. With your help we look forward to increasing future scholarship awards. Click Here to learn more about our Angela Pauling Scholars.
In 2018, MMSI launched the Inaugural WE LEAD: Empowering Our Girls Conference (in Queens, NY) to have a more meaningful and far reaching impact within our communities. Our conference aims to highlight and address the needs and challenges girls face, while also promoting girls' empowerment and the fulfillment of their human rights. This amazing event provides motivating messages and workshops from women on the challenges they faced and how they pushed past them. The day culminates with the “Gems Among Us” Awards presentation, honoring outstanding individuals and organizations for their commitment to uplifting and empowering our girls.
We hosted a successful virtual 3rd Annual 2021 WE LEAD: Empowering Our Girls Conference in collaboration with Casita Maria Center for Arts & Education, located in the Bronx, NY. In 2022, we will host the 4th Annual Conference in the Bronx, NY and mid-year programs to Empower OUR Girls.

ABOUT THE FILM: Black Men In White Coats
Less black men applied to medical school in 2014 than in 1978 and black men have the lowest life expectancy in the United States. With only 2% of American doctors being black men, this comes as no surprise. This documentary dissects the systemic barriers preventing black men from becoming medical doctors and the consequences on society at large.
Health care accounts for nearly 20% of the United States’ GDP and a significant portion of that is driven by disparities in a system that lacks diverse physicians. What if we had a medical workforce that actually reflected our patient population? What challenges do our black boys face? Who are their role models? Why is it easier to visualize a black man in an orange jumpsuit than it is in a white coat? What’s happening in society that more black women are becoming doctors while black men are stagnant? WHOSE FAULT IS IT? It’s time to end this CRISIS and get more BLACK MEN IN WHITE COATS!
