Post office to be renamed in Height's honor

By The Associated Press

A post office in Washington will be officially renamed in honor of civil rights leader Dorothy Height.

A ceremonial renaming of the post office near Union Station is scheduled for 3 p.m. Tuesday. It will become the first federal building in the city to be named after a black woman.

Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton, a Democrat who represents the District of Columbia in Congress, introduced the bill to rename the post office and will be on hand for the ceremony. She says Height was proud to be a D.C. resident.

Height was president of the National Council of Negro Women for 40 years.
