Pauli Murray: A Personal and Political Life by Troy R. Saxby
Raised in Durham, the Rev. Dr. Anna Pauline “Pauli” Murray (1910–1985) was a trailblazing social activist, writer, lawyer, civil rights organizer, and campaigner for gender rights. In this intimate biography, Troy Saxby provides the most comprehensive account of Murray’s inner life to date, revealing her struggles in poignant detail and deepening our understanding and admiration of her numerous achievements in the face of pronounced racism, homophobia, transphobia, and political persecution. Registration is required to join our discussion of Pauli Murray as space is limited. Registration opens October 4. To register and join the conversation on October 25 at 6:30 pm in Brevard College’s McLarty-Goodson Room 125, please call (828) 884-1830.
