Tell Me Why Dear Bennett: Memoirs of Bennett College Belles, Class of 1924-2012


Intent on "making a difference," thousands of young women have passed through the Bearden Gates at Bennett College for Women.

This book contains memoirs of over 140 women which reflect this country's history from the post Civil War era when Bennett was organized in 1873, through several subsequent wars, the Great Depression, the Civil Rights Movement, the rise in technology, and the breaking of the glass ceilings of race and gender. Tell Me Why Dear Bennett will appeal to readers interested in "her-story" as women from the oldest Belle at 106 to the youngest at eighteen share their fascinating memoirs. Perhaps this book will inspire others to tell their unique stories as well.
