Chanecka and Ana have been best friends since coming to college in 2008. Although they both have grown up on different sides of the States, fate lead them to Columbia, Mo. where they both are undergraduates at Stephens College. With little activity for Black women on campus, Chanecka and Ana both found sisterhood in Black Greek Life (Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. respectively). This upcoming story will focus on the relationship between best friends, their collective vision as aspirants of BGLOs, and their struggle to create a safe place for women of color on their campus through their development of a new campus organization: B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L. Yes, I have been working on this folks! Gotta finish this Master’s degree! I’ll post more updates as I get them. 🙂
First, I have to show love to the wonderful women of Epsilon Psi Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Thank you beautiful sisters for allowing me to spend the day with you all and trusting me to do good work. Now, for the NEOS!
