The Black Women’s Project Southampton chapter was established in September 2020 by Busola Egunnike and Yatta Feika. In just one year they were able to host multiple in-person and online events, growing a user base of 50+ members. United by one goal – BWP Southampton continues to work towards creating a lasting impact on campus and in the lives of the Black women at the University.
