We Love and Thank You Dorothy Height

“The fact of the matter is that we do not want black power for American negroes. We don't want white power for American whites. . . . The kind of power we seek is the power of freedom in a colorless society -- the power to help build a constructive nation and a constructive world together with our fellow Americans." Dorothy Height, Matriarch of Civil Rights Movement

First of all, how freaking adorable was she? I read that she never really raised her voice but commanded attention whenever she spoke and was a woman of controlled strength.

In the bible it talks about how David did not die until he fulfilled everything that he was to do in his generation. Doesn't mean that there was no more to be done, he just did all that HE was supposed to do. Now that Ms. Height has fulfilled her destiny, may we work hard to fulfill ours with similar tenacity and dignity.
