Square – Documentary
Maryam Henderson-Uloho spent thirteen years in prison in Louisiana, seven in solitary confinement. After her release she struggled to find housing or employment. She began selling secondhand goods out of a suitcase on a street corner in New Orleans. In just three years, she grew her business to a brick-and-mortar thrift store—one that also provides housing and employment for other formerly-incarcerated women. She calls those women—and her store — Sister Hearts.
This film is the 4rd in the "For Every Dream" series developed with Square — a series that explores America through the lens of small business in unexpected communities.
