Dorothy Height


Black Feminisms honors and mourns pioneering black feminist and civil rights activist Dorothy Height. Height served on the national board of the YWCA for thirty years, acted as National President of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority from the late 1940s until the mid 1950s, and as President of the National Council of Negro Women for over forty years. She worked tirelessly on a national and international scale for the rights of women. May her journey be filled with peace and light.
