Sisters For Slay: Jamilah Nasheed Rallies Support For Mayor Francis Slay's Reelection Bid

Nasheed says that it's all political nonsense when those who oppose Slay argue that he is a dividing force in the city.

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."

Here's an invitation for the latest Sisters for Slay event.

RE the repeated smear comments -- I personally would like to see some more negative campaigning from Reed. I mean, who needs to talk about policy and the future of St. Louis when you can instead spend all your energy smearing the opponent? This is all rather refreshing and certainly fits with Reed's mantra of uniting our city. Awesome!
