RIP Dorothy Height (March 14, 1912-April 20, 2010)


This report has been confirmed by CNN news. Dorothy Height, the chair and president emerita of the National Council of Negro Women, and someone whom President Obama called “the godmother of the Civil Rights Movement” has died at the age of 98 years old. She was one of the great activist black women that we younger sisters looked to, as a model of grace and strength combined.

May God bless her and may she rest in peace.
