A final good-bye to Dr. Dorothy Height and a eulogy delivered by President Obama at the National Cathedral in Washington D.C. The civil rights icon and gay rights ally died last week at 98.
The President remembered Height as the "godmother of civil rights. President Obama said that Dr. Height was a constant presence at the White House. "She came by not once, not twice. Twenty-one times she stopped by the White House."
In the last months of her life, Height even took part in health care discussions at the White House and was scheduled to attend a February meeting with the President and civil rights leaders, he recalled. The New York Times adds: "Even though Washington was buried by a blizzard, [Obama] said, Ms. Height wanted to come anyway. 'She was not about to let just a bunch of men in this meeting. It was only when the car literally could not get to the driveway that she decided not to come."
