Height To Be Honored By P.O. Renaming Bill

WASHINGTON -- Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) plans to introduce a bill to rename the U.S. Post Office located at 2 Massachusetts Avenue NE the “Dorothy I. Height Post Office Building” when Congress reconvenes next week. 

 

“Dr. Height’s immensely impactful life has been recognized with virtually every significant national honor, from the NAACP Spingarn Medal to the Presidential Medal of Freedom to the Congressional Gold Medal,” said Norton.  “It is time to put Dr. Height’s name on a significant building in the nation’s capital.  Tomorrow begins the week of the annual Black Family Reunion, which Dr. Height organized to celebrate African American family values on the National Mall and elsewhere throughout the United States.  Dr. Height often told me that she was pleased to become a resident of the District of Columbia.  Along with official Washington, we will be pleased to have our landmark post office building named for this great American woman.”

 

Dorothy I. Height, who was President Emerita of the National Council of Negro Women, spent her life in service of African Americans, especially African American women, and in service of the people of the United States of America.  She championed countless efforts for equality and racial justice in our nation, from equal pay and voting rights for women to the integration of the nation’s governmental institutions and its societal norms.
