Reception and Book signing for Dr. Dorothy
February 20th, 2004
The California African American Museum
evening will be a lovely tribute to Dr.
Height and her legacy of
leadership in human rights....from protesting
lynchings in the early
40's; to her presence on stage with MLK,
Jr. at the 1963 March on
Washington; to mobilizing for the UN Conferences
on Women in Cairo and
Bejing she has faithfully stood her watch.
If, for whatever reason, you
were not there, let us not miss an opportunity
to appreciate one upon
whose shoulders we stand.
Rosalynn Smith Clark, Opera Noir, will
perform and Paula Madison,
President and GM of KNBC will engage Dr.
Height in conversation about
experiences in her memoir, "Open
Wide the Freedom Gates". P'Shaw's
Bistro is catering a fabulous soulful
meal and the Museum will keep open
the Brown v. Board of Education Exhibit.
At age 92, Dr. Height still
engages in spirited conversation about
the role of women in the civil
rights movement; the challenges of leadership
in today's social
environment; her relatioships with US
Presidents and icons like Mary
McCloud Bethune and Eleanor Roosevelt.
Height's book will be available at the
Museum but we encourage you
to buy it early at your favorite book
store - all of the events on the
tour have sold out of books. The museum
now has new and very accessible
undergroud parking - so don't let the
weather keep you away.
RSVP to the Museum so they'll know how
etc. will be needed. The number is 213-744-2056.
