The Sista Gurl Mystique

Happy Hump Day Sista Gurls!

The power that lies within black women is astounding. We have been giving the unique tooling through ancestry, to make the impossible possible! So what does that mean for the SistaGurl blog? Well it was my greatest wish at the start of this blog to make sure my readers are empowered enough to take that energy back to our girls. 

Black girls always need our support. They need to be triaged, before there is anything wrong, they need to see a narrative that speaks to who they are, and who they can potentially become. So finally, I had an AHA moment. At every event that I attended, I would always see a familiar face, an Evanston Township Alumni face. These women are dominating in every field, and they are the exact image that I believe our girls should see. 

So as the wheels turned in my head, I wrote this letter to each of them: 

As I send this message there is a black girl sitting at a desk at an Evanston school not completely sure if she has what it takes to be what she wants to be when she grows up. She’s searching for someone like YOU to inspire her, a mirrored image into her future. You could be the beacon to propel her into the confidence that she will need to keep moving forward. It's my hope, that someone she knows is a subscriber to the Sista Gurl Blog and will lead her to you. Someone that not only went to the schools she went to, but is beautiful, strong, and a rising talent. I've had the luxury of interviewing celebrities and as aspiring as they were, there’s something about a woman who isn't searching for fame and is an everyday hero. This year I pledged to highlight women of color in a series called “TheSistaGurlMystique” and as an Evanston Alum I believe you are perfect for it. I would love the opportunity to feature you in this series. It would cost you nothing but 10-15 minutes of your time as we discuss how you became the hero I see today. Additionally, I’d like to chat about your hope and vision for the future for yourself and for our girls.   

We will schedule time for a Facebook Live video so all of our followers can continue to fortify you in your excellence.
If this message and offer interests you, please let me know as I would be honored to motivate our girls through you!

I am excited to announce the start of a new series! Beginning this Thursday, February 1st, at 9PM CST, I will be launching the SistaGurl Mystique. Staring, Pastor Jackie Newsome, JD, China Panion, Dr. Jazmine Daye-Dillard,DDS, Kudzai Mutasa, and Emmy winner, Lena Waithe. 

What is the #SistaGurlMystique? One of my favorite marvel Super Villains is "Mystique" from X-Men. A few weeks ago, I wrote a post where I mentioned, "I was so busy being plain clothes Mystique covering my blue". Basically stating that at that particular time, I was shrouding my authenticity, to keep up appearances. Which in turn, held me back.

The ladies I named above the embodiment of Mystique being blue, WITHOUT APOLOGY. They've done away with the need to be someone else, and in my opinion, there are no better role models to have, than a group of black women, who are happily pursuing their dreams while being THEMSELVES.

I urge everyone reading this to follow me on Facebook at Laura Miller for the live interviews starting February 1st. If you have a little sister, niece, daughter, or cousin, grab her every Thursday Night at 9PM CST, (If it's too late, she can watch it over breakfast!), so she may be inspired. 

Wishing you abundant love and light. 

Eternally, your Capt SistaGurl 
Laura Miller

Ladies, Make Him Act Right! (From a man's perspective)

So ladies, we have a tendency to get advice from women about MEN far more than we should. So I have a special treat today. We're going to get some advice on how to entice, encourage, and exalt a man from you guested it.. A MAN. I picked one, who speaks with the sole purpose to educate. So some of his language may be a bit harder than you're used to but.. you will not be disappointed. Capt SistaGurl Out!  Introducing Tikko Brohey  Ladies do you feel like “dudes ain’t shit” or “dudes don’t act right?” Have you ever thought about the things you do that contribute to that? The answer is probably not.  Now granted there are dudes out there who just ain’t shit, and that’s just what it is. Majority of men are good men. But his partner can often determine just how good he'll actually be. Every woman deserves to be treated like a queen, as every man deserves to be treated like a king. The disconnect comes from when there’s an argument all the King and Queen shit is out the

Fellas Pregame Your Online Dating Profile: Advice from your future bae

By Rapmusiq So I’ve been in these internet dating streets for a few years now and I thought I’d do my future Boo a solid and give him the tips on how to snag a certified Queen ;). There’s no way around it, online dating is super weird. Most people are not even quite sure where to start. Shopping for humans isn’t something most people are used to; so we count on our instincts to make a snap decision when swiping right. Here are a few tips for the straight guys out there from a woman’s perspective. I’ve seen these don’ts on so many profiles and confirmed them as turn-offs in mutual conversations with diverse groups of women. A few subtle changes can be the difference between you ending up in the inbox of the woman you would like to get to know better. Once you’re there let your personality, style, and charm to take it away! Do's Post great Pics I have noticed that most straight guys take horrible pics. They’re blurry, half your face is it cut off, you’re in

The Church is Failing: The Young Black Male

This is a taboo subject. That I’ve thought about quite a bit but never had the courage to really vocalize. Courage and fear are funny things because one of them is just as strong as the other, it’s just a question of which one you choose to live in. So today, I choose to live within a courageous light. Why, being a black woman, and an active christian would I have a fear vocalizing my opinion on how black men have been failed by the church? Messages are often misconstrued based on the perception of the reader. Additionally, it’s best practice to NOT add any fire to the flame of those that question institutionalized religion. However, in this case, I think I’d like to get this out with the hopes that some black man, within a particular age, will utilize this post as a reason to do better in reaching young black men. There was a time when the core of the civil rights movement was centered around black men and women within religious faiths. They actively worked together,
