HEIGHT--Dorothy. The NYU Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development mourns the loss of our cherished alumna, Dorothy Height. Through her life's work, Dorothy taught us to fight hard, to privilege justice and equality, and to see the beauty in every human being. The legacy of her social activism will inspire us for generations. Our deepest condolences to her family.
