The Dorothy Height Commemorative Bronze Medal has been added to the Museum Of UnCut Funk Coin and Medal Collection.
The Museum of UnCut Funk is all about celebrating the power of THE FUNK and of 1970’s Black Culture. As we continue to provide information on one of the most powerful and productive decades in Black history, we also want to pay homage those those who passed this year who were major players during this period and beyond.
Dorothy Height marched alongside Martin Luther King and led the National Council of Negro Women for 40 years, was known for her determination and grace as well as her wry humor. She remained active and outspoken well into her 90s and often received rousing ovations at events around Washington, where she was easily recognizable in the bright, colorful hats she almost always wore.
