Dr. Dorothy I. Height

On this day, March 24, 1912 Dr. Dorothy I. Height was born. Among her many storied accomplishments is the conception in 1986 of the Black Family Reunion Celebration. Created to celebrate accomplishments of black people globally, this multi-city cultural event attracted more than 12 million people within 2 decades. Dr. Height’s lifetime of achievement is a testament to her indomitable spirit and fierce determination to liberate African Americans. Known for her irrepressible advocacy for women’s rights and always donning a brilliant hat, she passed on to glory April 20, 2010 at Howard University hospital. In her own words, “If the time is not ripe, we have to ripen the time.” This has been another Breath of My Ancestors Minute w/Ty Gray-EL…We Must Never Forget
