Honors From Barnard

In 2004, she was recognized as an honorary alumnus by the school that had initially turned her away as a youth, Barnard College, receiving the honor during its commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education decision.

Above, Dr. Height was joined by Don King, Al Sharpton, Oprah Winfrey, Marion Barry, and Danny Glover at the Uncommon Height Gala, honoring Height's achievements, in 2002.
