Dr. Dorothy I. Height, Chair & President Emerita National Council Negro Women

“Your talents have brought exposure and life to America’s first true art form. It is our social responsibility to preserve the culture that our forefathers died for. W. E B. Debois stated so poignantly about this music: (‘it still remains the singular spiritual heritage of the nation and the greatest gift of the Negro people’). Know that you are an important resource. Keep up the good work.”
