Bennett, affectionately known as “Dr. Syb,”shared the significant research she has tackled demonstrating today’s Internet parallels with the early 19th century slave escape routes of the Underground Railroad (UGRR). In her latest book “Innovate: Lessons from the Underground Railroad,” Bennett explains how the Underground Railroad is among the most effective, disruptive and innovative networks in American history, and compares it to the Internet by establishing how the past and the present virtually collide to create the future in real time. “When you think about the ingenuity that went into creating such an organized network of movement and communication during the time of the Underground Railroad and you compare that same concept to how individuals move and share information through the Internet, the comparisons are too obvious to ignore,” Bennett said. “This book reveals how both platforms serve as avenues for expression of freedom, justice and equality whether networking through portals and links to branding and ownership.” Bennett is a Vanderbilt-educated, Harvard-trained, two-time Emmy award-winning journalist with professional experience in the traditional and social media fields spanning more than 20 years. She is currently a professor of Journalism at Belmont University in Nashville.
