On December 14, 2010 the New York Annual Conference Caring & Sharing Advent Service sponsored by the A.M.E. Ministerial Alliance of New York and Vicinity took place at St. Luke A.M.E. Church in Hamilton Heights, New York.  

Wilhelmina Obatola Grant, visual artist, breast cancer survivor and founder of SISTAAH, Inc. (Survivors Inspiring Sisters Through Art & Advocacy for Health) arrives at St. Luke with 2,500 hand fans bearing an informative health message.  The SISTAAH Fan Project, funded by Susan G. Komen for the Cure, seeks to spread awareness and encourage early detection of breast cancer. 



Wilhelmina is welcomed by Bishop Richard Franklin Norris and the Pastor of St. Luke A.M.E. Church, Rev. Melvin E. Wilson.  More than 200 attendees enjoyed a delicious hot dinner followed by a lively worship service.  Rev. Wilson voiced his support for the SISTAAH Fan Project from the pulpit and encourages A.M.E. Ministerial Alliance members to carry a supply of fans to their respective churches. 



Accordingly, at the conclusion of the evening, SISTAAH distributed bagfuls and armloads of fans to the A.M.E. Ministerial Alliance Members representing 50 churches throughout New York State.  Afterward, Wilhelmina and Rev. Erika Crawford, who delivered the evening’s sermon, exchange hugs and holiday wishes.



Following the successful distribution of approximately 2,500 fans to A.M.E. Alliance Members, Sis. Mary Davis  (center) is delighted to have a hefty supply of fans available for the participants of the upcoming New York Conference Branch Women’s Missionary Society meeting.  Much gratitude is extended to Rev. Wilson and the A.M.E. Ministerial Alliance for their assistance in the SISTAAH Fan Project. 


On October 9, 2010 Wilhelmina Grant was invited participate in the Saturday Morning Rally, Broadcast Live on WLIB Radio at the National Action Network in Harlem.  Wilhelmina introduced listeners to the SISTAAH Fan Project.
