According to Oxford Languages, Journey in its most basic context means, "an act of traveling from one place to another." The one that really resonates with me most is Oxford's second definition, "a long and often difficult process of personal change [or] development." I know this to be the truth because my mother confirmed it and well, I am living it.
I would be remiss if I did not kick Black History Month off with someone that is not only influential to me, but influential to the culture in more ways than one. Sister Souljah is more than just the writer who changed my life, but she is an activist, public speaker, musician (one and only lady of Public Enemy), and film producer.
