The late civil rights icon Dorothy Height left her mark on the course of the nation's history, now, some in DC want to honor her by renaming one of D.C.'s historic buildings.
Dorothy Height left her stamp on the Civil Rights movement for 80 years, working alongside Martin Luther king Junior and other visionaries of history. She died earlier this year at the age of 98.
Now D.C. Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton wants to see Height's name on the City Post Office Building, next to Union Station on Massachusetts avenue. Norton is making the announcement as the annual Black Family Reunion week kicks off, a cultural event that Height launched to celebrate African American families.
Norton will introduce a bill in Congress when it reconvenes next week, to make the name change.
