“Dorothy’s inspirational life story is the journey of a daughter of the South who became a pioneering black woman journalist, an influential voice in the pages of The Washington Post, a national leader of the movement to foster diversity in the news media, and a dedicated mentor to countless aspiring young journalists,” said colleague and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Carl Bernstein. “And, it is a welcome gift for colleagues and readers who have benefited from her work and presence in our lives.”
“Dorothy is a great reporter, a pioneer for all women in the news business, and African American women particularly,” said Don Graham, former publisher of the Post. “Her story is about a time in American journalism where courage and brilliance were called for in the white-male fortresses that were American newsrooms. It’s a story that has been waiting a long time to be told.”
