Today, I am remembering the legacy of Dorothy Height and feeling her loss.
She exuded excellence of character, strength and resiliency. As a black woman she embodied dignity and grace - setting a standard for many young women to follow. As an American, she was a champion of education and equal rights for everyone.
I am hopeful that the life she lived and the legacy she created will live on through her peers and those she mentored. She lived a full, rich life and made an impact that will continue to stand years beyond her death.
