Dear Friends,
Dorothy Cotton leaves a legacy of a life well lived a life of meaning and contribution, to emulate.  
In her leadership role of Educational Director of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), Dorothy launched the Citizenship Education Program, offering training and practice in civic and political participation based on principles of nonviolent resistance.  Dr. Cotton's work on voter education resulted in the registration and integration of individuals throughout the South and nationally, altering the landscape for citizen integration in shaping policy and elections at a most pivotal time in our nation's Civil Rights Movement.  Dorothy served in leadership of SCLC with Dr. Martin Luther King and other civil rights icons, whose  collective work has shaped the prominence of citizen engagement for our entire nation.
Many will recall Dorothy as the highest-ranking woman in the leadership of shaping civil rights. Her contributions have helped shape America.
Today we salute the life and legacy of Dorothy Cotton, and urge us all to take a moment to reflect on Dorothy's contributions, achievement and legacy.  May we find ways to be more like Dorothy in our work and relationships together. 
 
For a stronger democracy, 
Roy D. Wilson, Ed.D.
