Equal Opportunity Schools: Celebrating Dorothy Height

Women’s History Month is a celebration of women’s contributions to history, culture and society. Equal Opportunity Schools celebrates women of color, like Dorothy Height, the godmother of the women’s movement. Height began her career in New York City as an educator, led the National Council of Negro Women (NCNW) for four decades, and advised the Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA). In 1994, she received the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Equal Opportunity Schools: Celebrating Mary McLeod Bethune

Equal Opportunity Schools is celebrating Black History Month by recognizing a truly inspirational Black educator. Mary McLeod Bethune was a lifelong champion of education and civil rights. She started her career as a teacher before founding Bethune-Cookman College, which provided a place for African American students to pursue a college degree and set the educational standards for today’s black colleges.

We encourage you to join the conversation and leave a tribute on our social media channels @EqualOppSchools.
