    Dorothy Height Dies at 98 & The Death of Courage Among Black Women in the 21st Century

    A great woman has died this morning at 98 years of age at Howard University Hospital. Dorothy Height, the woman who was a civil rights activist fought against the struggle for all races of women, fought against segregation and lynchings, a chair person and president emerita of the National Council of Negro Women and worked alongside Dr. Martin Luther King, A. Philip Randolph and John Lewis. Dorothy Heights did a lot more in her lifetime.  Yes, it is a celebration, she lived a long fruitful life.  However, have the race of black women who have not learned anything about this precious soul who did her job and did not waste her time causing conflict and pain on others, including disrespecting herself? A lot of African American women do not get it, just because we are free and things seem easier than in the era during the civil rights movement, there is work to do.   These days, you cannot find black women to care about the concerns of social matters that causes pain on humanity.   A black woman may dispute, ‘you can’t find black men to do their part either‘, but you see, my friend, that’s not the attitude to take.  No man can fight the battle alone and neither did Dr. Martin Luther King, he had a strong woman like Dorothy Height, including his wife, Coretta Scott King.
