March 7: “Suffer & Grow Strong: The Life of Ella Gertrude Clanton Thomas” – Carolyn Curry
Curry received her Ph.D in History from Georgia State University, and has since taught at the University of Kentucky and Westminster Schools. Currently she serves as the Founder and Director of Women Alone Together, a non-profit that works to build confidence and community among the growing number of women who are alone in our culture because of death, divorce, separation, estrangement, or being single by choice. The inspirational woman Ella Gertrude began keeping a diary at fourteen. The Civil War and its aftermath changed her life forever. She experienced poverty, illness, and devastating family strife. She saw four of her ten children die. She grew to question the “peculiar institution” upon which the antebellum South was built and, in her later years, she became a leading voice in the suffrage and temperance movements.
