With GOD ALL Things are possible!
Diamonds are made from great pressure. Pressure is something that Rev. Dr. L.E. Bennett knew well having been part of the 1st Civil Rights Movement.
Sharon K. Bennett
I'm an author who recently penned a biography of a civil rights leader. Growing up in the 1960s as a person of color proved to be emotional and, at times, turbulent as the daughter of Rev. Dr. L.E. Bennett because he took the selfless step forward to integrate the significant telecommunications company of Southwestern Bell/AT&T. The pressures endured from that civil rights movement and by that leader also affected his family.
A Book, Tea, and Me!
In the 1950s and 1960s, the war against racism and inequality raged in America with fire, pain, and death. Rev. Dr. L.E. Bennett furthered his activity past the voting booth in civil rights, spurred by the in-person speech from John F. Kennedy (J.F.K.) in front of the Alamo on September 12, 1960, in San Antonio, Texas. Through many trials, he fought systemic bigotry and successfully integrated the business behemoth of Southwestern Bell/ AT&T—putting his life and his family at risk.

Exhibit now Open to honor Texas Civil Rights Leader:
L.E. Bennett's accomplishments earned him a Political Education Award from Former President Roy Wilkins of the NAACP, a Wall of Tolerance Certificate signed by Ms. Rosa Parks, a letter from Former President Bill Clinton, a commendation from Former Senator Ruth Jones McClendon, and more.
He was dynamic and outspoken! It's no wonder with the large Christian and electrifying family he came from. I mean, how many father's do you know of that knocked a cow out.
