    This is true. To suffer without struggling is disgraceful. To complain without action is contemptible. The only things that grow without any effort on our part are weeds.

    Dr. Dorothy Height: Pride in Excellence

    Dr. Dorothy I. Height
    (FinalCall.com) - The year is 1929 and the Harlem Renaissance is at its height. It is the home of Black intellectuals and literary giants like Alain Locke, Zora Neale Hurston, and Claude McKay. Nearly 200,000 Blacks have migrated from the South to escape racism in search of a better way of life, making that city of just three square miles the largest concentration of Blacks in the country.

    It's also the year that a young college bound Dorothy Height is accepted into Barnard College, but by the time she arrives to register she is denied admittance because the great institution of higher learning for women has reached its quota of two Negroes.

    “I couldn't bear to call home and report that I wasn't going to college after all—that they didn't want me,” Dr. Height writes in her memoir “Open Wide the Freedom Gates.” She was urged by her brother William to apply to New York University.
