Facebook-Header-I AM MORE THAN MY HAIR - Eventive.png


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.

Revised Black Men In White Coats1.png

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!

International Women's Day

International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. Marked annually on March 8th, International Women's Day  is one of the most important days of the year to:

  • celebrate women's achievements

  • raise awareness about women's equality

  • lobby for accelerated gender parity

  • fundraise for female-focused charities


The campaign theme for International Women's Day 2021 is 'Choose To Challenge'. A challenged world is an alert world. And from challenge comes change. So let's all #ChooseToChallenge.

Purple, green and white are the colors of International Women's Day. Purple signifies justice and dignity. Green symbolizes hope. White represents purity, albeit a controversial concept.
