Melanie L. Campbell's remarks on the passing of Dr. Dorothy Height

Statement of Melanie L. Campbell, executive director and CEO of the National Coalition on Black Civic Participation and co-convener with Dr. Height of Black Women’s Roundtable

"Today we mourn the passing of our beloved leader, teacher, mentor and guide, Dr. Dorothy I. Height. Dr. Height dedicated her life to civil rights, human rights and women's rights in our nation and around the world. Dr. Height was a founding board member of The National Coalition on Black Civic Participation and the Black Women's Roundtable.

“I feel Blessed and honored to have been mentored by Dr. Height, working with her in recent years on the Black Women's Roundtable with an intergenerational network of women to promote the empowerment of women and girls. Dr. Height taught us that we must be organized and stay focused on the work and that we are more powerful working together in unity and that 'unity does not mean uniformity.'

“I challenge each of us to celebrate Dr. Height's life by mentoring a young person and continuing to do the work for justice, equality and opportunity for women, girls and all people."
