Legacies Project Oral History: Ernestine Bull

Wed, 01/15/2020 - 9:58am

Ernestine Bull grew up in Detroit after moving there with her uncle in 1943, and she recalls attending concerts by the young Aretha Franklin at New Bethel Baptist Church in the 1950s. She joined the United States Army Women's Army Corps (WAC) and did her basic training at Fort McClellan, Alabama. She was stationed at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, where she was a member of the basketball team, and in Yokohama, Japan. After her service in the army she was a teacher at Dexter Ferry Elementary School in Detroit for many years.

Ernestine Bull was interviewed by students from Skyline High School in Ann Arbor in 2010 as part of the Legacies Project.
