My Name Is Pauli Murray
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, and fought heavily in the battle for social justice. Told mainly using Murray’s own words, this filmic portrait reveals a tenacious spirit; Pauli Murray is a name you will not forget.
This special Sheffield DocFest screening will be followed by a 30 minute pre-recorded Q&A, with directors Betsy West, Julie Cohen and Cinque Northern.
