Who Was Pauli Murray?

Pauli Murray was ahead of her time. . .

PAULI MURRAY WAS ARRESTED AND JAILED FOR THE SAME CRIME IN 1940!

LUNCH COUNTER SIT-INS IN GREENSBORO IN 1964 BROUGHT NATIONAL ATTENTION TO JIM CROW.

PAULI MURRAY AND FELLOW HOWARD LAW SCHOOL STUDENTS HAD SUCCESSFULLY DEFEATED JIM CROW AT A WASHINGTON DC RESTAURANT 20 YEARS BEFORE!

PAULI MURRAY CHALLENGED BIASES BY APPLYING TO CHAPEL HILL GRAD SCHOOL WHEN BLACK STUDENTS WERE PROHIBITED AND APPLYING TO HARVARD LAW SCHOOL WHEN WOMEN WERE FORBIDDEN TO MATRICULATE.

SHE WAS AMONG THE FIRST WOMEN PRIESTS ORDAINED IN THE EPISCOPAL CHURCH – AT THE AGE OF 67.

MURRAY RESEARCHED AND WROTE A BOOK THAT WAS CONSIDERED “THE BIBLE” BY NAACP LAWYERS AS THEY WAGED WAR AGAINST DISCRIMINATION.

HOW COULD ONE PERSON ACCOMPLISH SO MUCH? How could so few of us know about her?

SHE WAS A WOMAN WORTH KNOWING AND REMEMBERING.
