Welcome to The Nigerwife Project! We are a group of volunteers dedicated to collecting, preserving and sharing the untold stories of Nigerwives:
the name given to women who moved from their homelands to Nigeria as wives during the 20th and 21st century.
Find out more about the history here (coming soon).
Founder & Project Manager: Rhianna Ilube (@rhianna_ilube)
Project Volunteers: Selma Ilube, Laura Leonard
Thanks also goes to the women who have shared their fascinating stories with us; the initial advice given to us by Esme Loukota (Curator & Executive Officer at Museum of Richmond) and many other individuals; and for the training and resources given to us by the Spotify Sound Up Bootcamp for Women of Colour.
