Breaking Down Barriers

Once called the queen of the civil rights movement by late activist C. DeLores Tucker, her entire life was dedicated to breaking down barriers to fight for a cause. One of her favorite sayings was, "If the time is not ripe, we have to ripen the time." After a fulfilling life, Height passed away at the age of 98 from natural causes  on April 20, 2010. Her legacy continues.
