Lancaster Public Library is pleased to partner with YWCA Lancaster to present The Dorothy Height Book Club.
Dorothy Height was a leader in addressing the rights of both women and African Americans as the president of the National Council of Negro Women. One of Height’s major accomplishments was at the YWCA USA where she directed the integration of all of its centers in 1946 and established its Center for Racial Justice in 1965. Join our interactive, insightful book club with a focus on diverse, thought-provoking writers and subjects.
Join us for virtual sessions on the 3rd Thursday of every month. After you register, you will receive the meeting link.
