Quote Of The Day - Dorothy Height

"Civil rights are civil rights. There are no persons who are not entitled to their civil rights. We have to recognize that we have a long way to go, but we have to go that way together." - Civil rights pioneer Dorothy Height, speaking to the Human Rights Campaign in 1997. Height died today at the age of 98. I wrote an essay about Dorothy Height for my seventh grade civics class in a painfully transparent effort to suck-up to my teacher, who was a distant (and very proud) relative. My grandmother loved her hats.
