Join Professor Sheryl Nomelli and I as we give the sisters their due. We talk about a few of her favorite female historical figures, sociologist/activist the historical Jane Addams, Anita Hill, Hill's connection to Joe Bidden, and the #metoo movement.
Professor Sheryl Nomelli returned to college as a re-entry student at the age of 30, earning her undergrad degree in History, with a minor in Women’s Studies, from California Lutheran University. She completed her MA in History with a focus on Southern and Women’s history at California State University, Northridge. Her graduate research focused on the unique community of Adams County, Natchez, Mississippi which held a large number of white planter elites, their enslaved labor, and the free black “Blue Vein” society during the Antebellum and post-Antebellum period of the 19th Century.
Professor Nomelli has been teaching history since 2003 specializing in U.S., Women's, and Southern history. Her teaching experience includes both undergrad and graduate courses at California State University, Northridge (CSUN), California Lutheran University, College of the Canyons, Moorpark College, and currently as tenured faculty at Los Angeles Pierce College. Returning to school while both working and raising a family has given her a unique perspective as an instructor at a community college. Many of her students struggle with the same challenges and her goal is to encourage them to hang in there and achieve their academic dreams.
