RIP, Dorothy Height: Open Wide the Freedom Gates

We've all heard of female African American civil rights icons like Rosa Parks and Coretta Scott King, but not enough of us know who Dorothy Height is. Ms. Height passed away this morning at the age of 98, and we want to pay tribute to this amazing woman who never stopped fighting for racial justice and gender equality. Pick up a copy of her 2005 memoir, Open Wide the Freedom Gates ($12), for a glimpse into the life and mind of this fabulous woman. We promise you'll be moved.
