Height was just a few feet from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. when he delivered his famous “I Have a Dream” speech during the March on Washington in 1963. “He spoke longer than he was supposed to speak,” she recalled in a 1997 Associated Press interview. But she knew the speech would have lasting effects for generations to come because “it gripped everybody.”
