Black Caucus

 Washington D.C. – Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA), Chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus, released the following statement today after learning of the passing of legendary civil rights leader Dr. Dorothy I. Height:

“On behalf of the Congressional Black Caucus, I extend my deepest condolences to the family and friends of Dr. Dorothy I. Height, a bold and brilliant African American woman who blazed many trails and opened many doors for a countless number of Americans, particularly the empowerment of women and girls, during her life-long quest for justice.

“Today, with the passing of Dr. Height, our nation mourns the loss of a true national treasure whose leadership in the struggle for equality and human rights for all people should be an inspiration to all Americans.  Her undying commitment to a just society and vision for a better world undergirds the work of the Congressional Black Caucus.

“Throughout her life, Dr. Height wore many hats—literally and figuratively with elegance and dignity, excellence and determination. From her legendary stewardship of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. as National President to her unprecedented 41-year tenure at the helm of the National Council of Negro Women, Dr. Height always led with courage and strength.

“Today we mourn the loss, but celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Height—a visionary and great humanitarian who gave us all so much.”
