Dr. Height will be remembered not only as an advisor to several U.S. presidents, but also as an advocate for families and a champion of justice. We are all her children, heirs of the dream and inheritors of the legacy she leaves. Certainly, the lessons she taught, the life she led and the examples she set for nearly a century are extraordinary. We are humbled by her service to humanity and her lifelong commitment to helping others.
We join her family, her beloved National Council of Negro Women – the organization that she led for more than forty years – and her many friends throughout the nation in declaring that we have a better world because she lived.
