Please join the Bertha Harris Women’s Center for a screening of the documentary film, My Name is Pauli Murray, on Tuesday, Nov. 28 from 2:30pm to 4:30pm in the Library Theatre (Building 1L, Room 103).

Pauli Murray is the person behind many of the freedoms we enjoy today-–a lawyer who had to fight for their educational rights on grounds of race and gender, a non-binary queer pioneer, a feminist who founded the National Organization for Women, a legal thinker whose writings informed the NAACP’s successful Brown vs. the Board of Education strategy to end segregation in education, a feminist lawyer who worked with the ACLU to ensure women’s legal rights, a published poet and essayist, college professor, the first Black woman ordained to Episcopal priesthood, and today, saint and ongoing inspiration. Pauli Murray’s life reads like the story of a superhero but in real life. Come and learn more about her. 

This is a CC CLUE event. For more information, contact the Bertha Harris Women’s Center, Dr. Catherine Lavender, PhD, Director, in Building 2N, Room 106;; or 718.982.2871. All are welcome.
