Film Screening: My Name Is Pauli Murray

Documentary filmmakers Julie Cohen and Betsy West (RBG, Julia) look at the life and ideas of Pauli Murray, a non-binary Black lawyer, activist, and poet who influenced both Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Thurgood Marshall. Told largely in Murray’s own words, this documentary is a stirring tribute to a largely unsung hero of social justice. Murray understood what it meant to exist beyond previously accepted categories and cultural norms. Directed by: Julie Cohen & Betsy West
