Monday Quotable

Today would mark Dr. Dorothy Height's 102nd birthday. She was a major part of the civil rights movement, but until she published her memoir, Open Wide the Freedom Gates, in 2003, her story was largely unknown. She was the lone female voice in many decision making councils during the movement and continued her work long after it was over. She worked tirelessly for women's rights, an end to discrimination and relief for the poor until her life ended in 2010. Today's quote speaks to her commitment to service. You know I champion giving back/volunteering and I couldn't agree more that it is the way we grow and develop. Happy Monday!
