Dorothy Height’s Hats

Dorothy Height’s Hats

Design, Fashion Show/Bridal, History/Science
The Civil Rights activist Dorothy Irene Height (1912-2010) was known for her courage, intelligence, leadership, standing straight – and hats. The 42 hats in the exhibition have been borrowed from The Dorothy I. Height Education Foundation in Washington, D.C. Height was almost never seen in public without a hat, and this exhibition displays many of her favorites. A number are full of history. She wore a vintage white mink hat at a meeting with Eleanor Roosevelt in 1938; a white, with red, white, and blue brim, at the 2008 Democratic National Convention that nominated President Barack Obama; and an aqua blue, with feather flowers, when she received the 2004 Congressional Gold Medal from President George W. Bush. On view through July 23.
