Dorothy Height was a leader in addressing the rights of both women and African Americans as the president of the National Council of Negro Women. One of Height's major accomplishments was at the YWCA USA where she directed the integration of all of its centers in 1946 and established its Center for Racial Justice in 1965.

To keep everyone safe we will be returning in February!
We will host our next Social Justice Club meeting on February 11th. During this hybrid event we will discuss High on the Hog: How African American Cuisine Transformed America, a Netflix series featuring two local chefs. This event will include a meal from two Lancaster chefs as they detail their cuisine and how it ties back to their family upbringing and the Black culture. High on the Hog, available on Netflix, will be the encouraged pre-viewing film that will be discussed during the evening.
5:30-6:30: Meal pick up at YWCA Lancaster

“American cuisine as we know and love it would simply not exist without the innumerable contributions of African Americans, past and present.”
