Maryam Henderson-Uloho spent thirteen years in prison in Louisiana, seven in solitary confinement. After her release she struggled to find housing and employment. She began selling gently used items out of a suitcase on street corners in New Orleans. In just three years, she grew her business to a brick-and-mortar thrift store and reentry program--that also provides housing and employment for other formerly--incarcerated women. She calls those women—and her store—SisterHearts.
