Tribute to a great lady: Dr Dorothy Height

From time-to-time; irrespective of nationality, culture or creed;  one comes across a person who stands out as a champion of freedom and justice for the individual.  The American civil rights activist, Dr Dorothy Height was such a person.  President Obama has paid fulsome tribute to her.  See White House (Obama meets with Dorothy Height) and President Obama's address at her funeral service.

The caged bird sings with a fearful trill
of things unknown but longed for still
and his tune is heard on the distant hill
for the caged bird sings of freedom.
