Pauli Murray: Imp, Crusader, Dude, Priest

Open through Nov. 27, 2022

Pauli Murray: Imp, Crusader, Dude, Priest is an exhibit that chronicles the life and legacy of the Rev. Dr. Pauli Murray as a significant 20th-century human rights activist, educator, lawyer, poet, and Episcopal priest.

Dr. Pauli Murray was a key player in the fight for African American, women’s, and LGBTQIA+ rights. At the same time, Murray was negotiating their own racial identity, struggling to earn a good living, and seeking more understanding of their sexuality and gender. Through photographs, quotes, audio, and text, the exhibit invites a deeper understanding of 20th-century American life.

Visitors to this exhibit, created by Durham’s Pauli Murray Center for History and Social Justice, can explore a variety of life-size photographs and an annotated timeline to learn more about the life of Pauli Murray.

The exhibition will be open May 28 through November 27, 2022.
