Author Dr. Margaret Bynum Hill has always been a woman of courage. Unfortunately, she didn’t discover this gift until she became an adult and a senior citizen. In From Sharecropping to Non-Stopping, she takes a look back at her life and how she has been uniquely shaped by the journey of her years.
In this memoir, she proves that even though she wasn’t born with a silver spoon in her mouth, she could still eat and be healthy, wealthy and wise. Hill tells of living the first decade of her life in houses where there was no electricity, indoor plumbing for drinking/cooking water, nor restroom facilities inside the home. She quickly learned from the family’s three-channel television there was a better life out there.
From a two-room school house to earning college degrees, From Sharecropping to Non-Stopping
offers a sense of what it was like growing up in poverty in the South. It narrates how Hill overcame these challenges and others as she became an adult, a teacher, and an administrator.
Dr. Margaret Bynum Hill earned a master’s degree and administrative credential from California State University, San Bernardino, and an honorary doctorate from the University of Redlands. She was a teacher and school administrator for many years and is now a motivational speaker. Hill lives in San Bernardino/Highland, California, with her husband Robert.
