R.I.P. Dorothy Height

Reign and I just saw her at the 2009 Black Family Reunion in Washington, D.C, which she attended every year. I really admired her determination & the sacrifices she took. What she did for the civil rights movement will never be forgotten. I remember first hearing her name on A Different World. Remember? I was a kid back then. In the newer seasons, Whitley & Kimberly ran Height Hall, named after Dorothy Height.

Here are some photos we took of her on the park monitor when she spoke....

She was truly an extraordinary woman who lived a full life. Words can't describe what she's been to African Americans every where. She will live on forever in our hearts. R.I.P. Dorothy Height.
