"Where Do You Stand?"

Flowers, Deidre Bennett

This blog post highlights the activism of the women students at Bennett College for Women as articulated by Roslyn Cheagle, president of the college's Student Senate. Cheagle's article is a call to action for students in the Greensboro, North Carolina area to take a stand against segregation. The student's actions continue the College's long history of involvement in protest and activism that dates back to the early years after its conversion, in 1926, to a college solely for women.
