A tireless activist, Soror Dorothy Irene Height (1912–2010), the 10th National President of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc dedicated her life to fighting for racial and gender equality. Although rarely gaining the recognition granted her male contemporaries, she became one of the most influential civil rights leaders of the 20th century. Soror Height received the nation’s two highest civilian honors for her work, the Medal of Freedom and the Congressional Gold Medal.

The United States Postal Service unveiled a stamp in her memory today, February 1, 2017 , at Howard Iniversity in Washington, DC. #wdcacdst #dst1913 #dstinc1913 #theeast #ncnw #usps #foreverstamp #blackhistorymonth
