Honoring a heroine of the civil rights movement – Dorothy Height – in song

"The name Dorothy Height isn't nearly as familiar to the general public as it should be, which is why B.B. King, Taj Mahal and others will be converging on Chicago in coming weeks. Guitarist King and friends rest will be celebrating Height's legacy – and marking Black History Month in Chicago – with 'Godmother: A Music and Dance Tribute to Dorothy Height and the Civil Rights Movement,' which will be filmed for broadcast next year."
