Malika and her friends put on a performance and spoken word for her Coterie family at her birthday party. Yari (Candace Nicholas) gives an incredible spoken word performance celebrating black girls and black womanhood.
I wanted to use my birthday to thank you all. When Alice brought me into the Coterie, she literally carved out a piece of her loft to give me a roof over my head. But she and all of you gave me so much more than that. You gave me my first home. My chosen family. Without you all I woudn't be graduating from college soon.
