Height,
who continued actively
speaking out into her 90s,
had been at Howard
University Hospital for
some time.

As a teenager,
Height marched in New
York’s Times Square shouting,
“Stop the lynching.”

In the 1950s and 1960s,
she was the leading woman
helping the Rev. Martin
Luther King Jr. and other
leading activists orchestrate
the civil rights movement.
