was known by fans and foes

“She said what?!” :

she said what? quote by dorothy parker

Ouch.

In addition to her literary output and outbursts,

Ms. Parker was very involved in the American Civil Rights movement.

In her will, she outlined that her entire estate

be bequeathed to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Upon his assassination in 1968, the estate of Dorothy Parker

was given to the NAACP

(The National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People).

 

The remains of Dorothy Parker are interned in a memorial garden

on the grounds of the NAACP headquarters in Baltimore, Maryland.
