I remember hearing Sister Souljah for the first time, yelling “We are at war!” at the beginning of Public Enemy’s Welcome To The Terrordome. Her song Slavery’s Back In Effect was prophetic, and later, when I was working at Nkiru Books, she dropped this classic on us, No Disrespect. Souljah’s story resonates with anyone who has ever had a hood experience growing up, especially young women.
