"When my feet first touched the southern soil, I was greeted with a French kiss from the devil. A level of heat that I had never experienced before. It’s 12:30 in the morning and this twenty-four-year-old woman from Oakland, California has just flown 1,917 miles to partake in my first Victor Family Reunion, and to see my biological mother, who lives in Mississippi, for the first time in ten years."
