Summary
"Euro-African-American activist Pauli Murray was a feminist lawyer who played pivotal roles in both the modern civil rights and women's movements, and later become the first woman ordained a priest by the Episcopal Church. Born in 1910 and identified as female, she believed from childhood that she was male. Jane Crow is her definitive biography, exploring how she engaged the arguments used to challenge race discrimination to battle gender discrimination in the 1960s and 70s. Before there was a social movement to support transgender identity, she mounted attacks on all arbitrary categories of distinction."--
Summary
In this comprehensive and accessible biography of 20th-century lawyer and African American activist Pauli Murray, we receive a detailed chronicle of her life and achievements, along with a history of the civil rights and feminist movements -- in addition to early views of intersectionality. Murray was always somewhat ahead of the curve, so she got into trouble for trying things that most other people didn't get around to for years. Eventually, people recognized her talents and began to work with her instead of against her. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
