She Persisted: Dorothy Height

Growing up as a Black girl in the 1920s and 1930s, Dorothy Height was denied access to a local swimming pool as well as admission to Barnard College because of her race. But she persisted in pushing for change, and became a seminal figure in both the civil rights and women's rights movements. She went on to be awarded the prestigious Presidential Medal of Freedom.

In this chapter book biography by award-winning author Kelly Starling Lyons, inspired by the best-selling She Persisted series, readers learn about the amazing life of Dorothy Height and how she spoke up and rose up against the odds. With short chapters, spot black-and-white illustrations throughout, and a list of ways that readers can follow in Dorothy Height's footsteps and make a difference, this is the perfect way to introduce young readers to the "godmother" of Civil Rights.
