Title: My Name Is Pauli Murray
Directors Name: Betsy West and Julie Cohen
Synopsis: Fifteen years before Rosa Parks refused to surrender her bus seat, a full decade before the U.S. Supreme Court overturned separate-but-equal legislation, Pauli Murray was already knee-deepfighting for social justice.A pioneering attorney, activist, priestand dedicatedmemoirist, Murray shapedlandmark litigation—and consciousness—around race and gender equity. As an AfricanAmerican youth raised in the segregated South—who was also wrestling withbroader notions of gender identity—Pauli understood, intrinsically, what it was to exist beyond previously accepted categoriesand cultural norms. Both Pauli’s personal path and tireless advocacy foreshadowed some of the most politically consequential issues of our time.
