The Sisters for Slay event sparked some backlash with a St. Louis American column criticizing Nasheed and calling the mayor "desperate for a hook to get into the African-American community."

"You have provocateurs...that want to continue the racial divide...but we are gonna move this city forward," says Nasheed. "Race relations is and issue that came before Slay and I."

Of the Sisters for Slay event, she says, "It was all women...and the majority were African American professionals, women that live and work in the city."

She adds, "I'm very confident that the mayor is going to make history."
