She Persisted!

I’m thrilled to share that She Persisted: Dorothy Height debuts today. I’ve wanted to write about Dr. Dorothy I. Height ever since I learned about her in college. She was the 10th national president of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., the sisterhood I proudly joined, and an incredible leader of civil and women’s rights. To Dr. Height, those two missions were not separate. They were inextricably linked, threads woven together into seamless tapestry. 

Her contributions are indelible: Dr. Height led the integration of YWCAs around the nation. She helmed the National Council of Negro Women for four decades. She helped organize the March on Washington. The impressive list of her achievements goes on and on. I love that her activism began in her youth. So grateful to share her story with kids today.
