Event Details
More than three decades after her death, the activist, lawyer, and Episcopal priest Pauli Murray remains one of the most compelling and enigmatic figures in Black intellectual history. In addition to playing a pivotal role in both the civil rights and women’s movement, her experiences of being non-binary in race and gender expressed a complex identity.

Through this 1-credit, two-day course, the Very Rev. Dr. Kelly Brown Douglas invites students and community members to explore Pauli Murray’s legacy in light of where the country and church are today. The course will especially draw from sections of Rosalind Rosenburg’s biography of Murray, Jane Crow.
