As a single mother, survivor of abuse, and champion for vulnerable individuals, Dr. Wilson is committed to helping women and children thrive.
Their work is deeply rooted in possibilities and the power of storytelling. Dr. Wilson often uses her own story of resilience to help individuals tap into their God-given power. Through advocacy, BGW lifts communities historically impacted by racial injustice, economic, health and educational disparities.
Their Family Justice Project, Spoons & Stories Public Health initiative, and Project 31 Business Institute were created to help women and children win. Since the pandemic, their outreach programs have reached over 500 families to improve food security, financial stability, and educational outcomes.
Dr. Wilson is a mother of three sons, English Professor, servant-leader, and member of Alpha Kappa Alpha, Sorority, Inc., Her work is heart work, and she promises to continue to serve to ensure no child goes to bed hungry, no woman questions her abilities, and every family soars above the historic oppression and disparities to create quality lives for each generation.
