What is freedom? It’s the power to speak and act without restraint. It’s the small act of resistance. And for poet Aja Monet, it’s the shared experience of power between Black women that speaks to our resilience and triumph, no matter our situation in life. Here, Aja takes us on a journey of a time she felt that empowerment and liberation, a time where fellowship among Black women allowed freedom to float up beyond walls mean to keep it suppressed. Here is the coloring of Aja Monet.
