Journey is a collection of poems that offers a reflective look at various periods and experiences of Wade Hudson’s life journey. There are poems about growing up in Mansfield, LA, a small, Jim Crow town in the south and the people who nurtured him and loved him. There are poems about the Black struggle for freedom and justice. Also included are poems that offer words of wisdom gained over years as an activist and Black cultural advocate. Poet and author Tony Medina calls Journey a “collection of lifelong wealth, experience, wisdom, and passion.” Writer and literary critic E. Ethelbert Miller says “Wade Hudson’s journey continues beyond the last page. His book is a baton to be passed to the next generation. His writing hand is filled with love.”
