Funeral for Dr. Dorothy Height ,Washington National Cathedral, April 29
WORTHY OF AN EXHIBITION!
BIG UPS MR. MONTGOMERY.
You better work it girls!!!
Where is Miss Fenty in her hat? She's one of the closeted girls.
Am I the only one who thinks that the 7th picture from the bottom looks like Mary J. Blige?!
Those are great pictures.
It is nothing like-it, to see a woman who can "rock" a hat, very few woman can put-in-on and pull-off that finished and refined look.
I meant "very few women"
@The Advoc8te, I thought the exact same thing. Could that be the reason why the picture is so much bigger than the rest?
TJ, The picture is only bigger because it is vertical and i need to post all photos at the same width. if it was/is Ms.Blige I would have no idea. I stink at celebrity spotting!
Thanks for the comments.
I thought that was Mary for a min too!
Not only very beautiful, you capture history in a dignified but light hearted way.
I would put my bottom dollar that was Mary J. Blige - for reals.
If you look close at the glasses you can kind of see her tell tale scar. Pretty sure that is her.
You are all correct that pic is of Mary J. Blige, Cicely Tyson was also at the funeral and yet I don't see her picture, she too wore her head piece with style and grace. I remember the old mother's back in the day who felt undressed if they did not have a hat on in church or when going to a brunch or lunch out.
Thanks Wendy! That was making me crazy!
I really think that was Mary J Blige. Didn't she make an appearance at Ms. Height's memorial?
And I saw Maya Angelou in a black and white photo, too.
These photos show how Dr height inspired women to reveal their petsonalities in the most flamboyant fashion. Perhaps we can exhibit the real Height Hats next?
Once again, Anita and Wendy Glenn, that pic IS NOT Mary J. It is Suzzanne Douglas, actress of Parent'Hood, How Stella Got her Groove, Tap, Inkwell. I am her publicist. I am right. The hat was made by Louise Green of LA, who is an awesome, awesome designer!
Thanks for getting that great shot of me and my black hat with the pin honoring Dr. Height that I designed. What a pictorial tribute. It was an honor to work so closely with this great lady for the last two years. She was my connection to my own legacy. If this ever becomes part of an exhibit let me know. Stay well and blessed - ALL!
