Dr. Dorothy Height - Black History. Women's History. American History. World History.

Today, in honor of telling important stories (thanks for the reminder, Hidden Figures and #ArrayToday), I am sharing the story of the dynamic and legendary Dorothy Irene Height. We have so many important stories to tell in this country - hers is one of many that more children and adults should know.

I wrote about a few of the many highlights of her life, complete with receipts, earlier on Twitter today. I've included my thoughts below.

Do you have additional important information to share about Dr. Height? What other important stories should be told? Drop me a comment below if you have thoughts or suggestions.
