Dr. Dorothy Height, the acclaimed civil rights leader was memorialized today at a local DC Post Office today. The post office located at 2 Massachusetts Avenue is the first post office to be named for an African American woman. Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) sponsored the bill to honor Ms. Height, who passed last year.
