Urban Caucus

 

 

WASHINGTON, -- Congressman Chaka Fattah (D-PA), Chair of the Congressional Urban Caucus issues the following statement on the death of Dr. Dorothy Height, maven of the civil rights movement:

"I join the nation as we mourn the death of a gentle yet powerful leader, Dr. Dorothy Height.  A woman of vision, her pioneering spirit and extraordinary sphere of influence was the catalyst that catapulted those from only dreaming of a better world to actually experiencing a better world.

"Dignified, diligent and distinctive in her leadership skills, Dr. Height was an impressive leader in the struggle for equality for all people. Her life was the epitome of compassion and commitment for a society where people are respected for their individuality, recognized for their labor and honored for their humanity.

"While her voice has been silenced, her works will echo throughout history as a woman who understood the need for change and tirelessly labored to make that change. Today, millions can bear witness to the influence her legacy has had on their lives."
