Exhibit Opening: Pauli Murray – Imp, Crusader, Dude, Priest

The Exhibit: “Pauli Murray: Imp, Crusader, Dude, Priest”
Paulli Murray ExhibitPauli Murray, 1910-1985, was an accomplished American activist who believed in justice, reconciliation, and freedom. She championed the cause of human rights through her work as an author, educator, lawyer, feminist, poet and priest. As a woman, a person of color, a worker, and a member of the LGBTQ community, Murray refused to see herself restricted by the categories of gender, race, class and sexuality. Instead, she aspired to an integrated body, mind, and spirit that required a holistic sense of self. This lofty aspiration spurred a life of energy and creativity that helped transform American society.

The Exhibit centers on a historical timeline of Murray’s life, exploring her accomplishments and philosophies about social justice. It includes photographs of Murray in various stages of her life, many of her writings, and a clip from a video interview she did in 1977 with Charles Kuralt. A traveling exhibit, it was first installed at the Levine Museum of the New South in Charlotte. It is scheduled to be in Durham August 21 – December 12 and will be free and open to the public from 10-7 daily.
