Knafel Center, 10 Garden Street, Cambridge, MA 02138


Anna Pauline Murray was a pioneering civil and human rights activist, feminist and legal theorist, preacher and poet. The Schlesinger Library holds the Pauli Murray Collection, a vast resource comprised of audiotapes, photographs, correspondence, and more. This panel discussion will focus on Murray’s groundbreaking work and her tumultuous times. The speakers—scholars of history, women’s and gender studies, law, and African studies—have each written about different facets of Murray’s prismatic, always interesting, and sometimes contradictory legacy.
