RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Civil Rights leader Dorothy Height will be buried on Thursday.
Dorothy Height fought for equal rights for both African-Americans and women.
During the civil rights movement in the 1960s, she organized "Wednesdays in Mississippi," bringing together black and white women from the North and South to create a dialogue of understanding.
Wednesday night hundreds gathered in Washington D.C. to remember Height.
Among those who spoke or performed were Bill and Hillary Clinton, Al Sharpton and Stevie Wonder.
On Thursday U.S. flags at the White House, and at all Federal buildings and military installations will be flown at half-staff in her honor.
Her funeral will take place at Washington National Cathedral, where President Obama will deliver the eulogy.
