Directors: Julie Cohen, Betsy West
Starring: Pauli Murray, Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Pauli Murray was a pioneering Black attorney, activist, priest, poet and memoirist who wrestled with gender identity and shaped landmark litigation – and consciousness – around race and gender equity, fighting heavily in the battle for social justice.

Despite paving the way for future generations and influencing people such as Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Murray remains a little-known figure in world history.

Told mainly using Murray’s own words, this filmic portrait from Julie Cohen and Betsy West (RBG) reveals a tenacious spirit; Pauli Murray is a name you will not forget.
