In 1926 it became a four-year women’s college. Today it is one of two historically black female colleges.
Located in Greensboro, North Carolina. Bennett students participated in the 1960 sit-ins to integrate the “whites–only” lunch counters around the city. Several “Bennett Belles” were arrested due to their continuing protests.
Today the college is celebrated for both its academics and civil leadership.
