    President Barack Obama will speak at the funeral of fallen civil rights leader Dorothy Height.
     
    The White House announced that the president will deliver Dorothy’s eulogy during the service set for 10 a.m. EST on April 29 at the Washington National Cathedral.

     
    Dorothy passed last week at the age of 98, leaving behind an illustrious legacy as the godmother of the civil rights movement. She lead the lead National Council of Negro Women and worked closely with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. She even stood on the platform with him as he delivered his iconic “I Have A Dream" speech.
     
    In honor of Dorothy’s passing, the president has decreed that all flags in the U.S. and on American military bases will be flown at half-staff on the day of her funeral.
