February Film Club | My Name is Pauli Murray
We invite you to join us for this month’s media club (formerly book club, but now we include films!).
Monday, February 28th from 7:00-8:30 p.m. on Zoom.
This month’s film is My Name is Pauli Murray, which you can watch on Amazon Prime. Watch the film prior to our gathering and then join in for an engaging conversation.
Pauli Murray, born in 1910, died in 1985, was an attorney, activist, priest and poet who made a significant impact in civil rights, women’s and LGBTQ movements. Yet many have not heard of Pauli Murray. The documentary “My name is Pauli Murray”, now streaming on Amazon Prime, shows how she helped to shape landmark litigation around race and gender equity; the first person of color to receive a Doctor of Science Law at Yale Law; joined James Baldwin as one of the first Black Writers at the MacDowell Colony; co-founded the National Organization of Women, and became the first Black female priest in the U.S. Pauli Murray was added to the Episcopal Church calendar of saints in 2018.
