November 3, 2010 @ 5:15 pm - 7:00 pm
In 1938, Pauli Murray applied for admittance to a graduate program at UNC-CH. She was denied acceptance because of her race. With her eloquent words and tenacious determination, she confronted the legal segregation of pubic education. This panel explores her struggle from multiple viewpoints and weighs the relevance of her observations and analysis to the policies and events of today.
