Introduction by Dr. Linda Beatrice Brown:
"Numerous scholars are aware that the participation of women in the national Civil Rights Movement was a key to its success. The same is true of the Greensboro movement. It is my intention here to examine the role of Bennett College women in particular within this legend that is Greensboro's story. I hope to add one more voice to that piece of the historical narrative of Greensboro....The women of Bennett College who made the decision to lift the veil of female respectability and step out into history deserve to be remembered, but more than that they are greatly needed today. Their story must be told. We have need of the example of their courage, their vision and their absolute certainty that there was a better way. If their story is lost we are the poorer for it, and so much further behind than ever. If their story is not told, our own young women and men will not have that powerful inspiration they need to go forward on their own journey of faith to make the world a better place. It is as important to remember them as it is to remember Dr, King for without them and others like them nothing would have changed."
