Dive into the extraordinary life of Pauli Murray in "Pauli Murray's Revolutionary Life: A YA Biography." Born in 1910, Pauli's journey through the tumultuous landscapes of race and gender predated the Civil Rights and Women's Movements, setting the stage for a lifetime of groundbreaking achievements. From disguising herself as a boy to ride freight trains during the Great Depression to forming lasting friendships with influential figures like Eleanor Roosevelt, Pauli's fearless spirit never wavered. She emerged top of her class at Howard University in 1944, became the first Black woman to earn a Doctorate in law from Yale in 1965, co-founded the National Organization for Women in 1966, and broke religious barriers as the first Black woman ordained as an Episcopal priest in 1977. Published on March 1, 2022, this narrative not only chronicles the relentless resilience of a pioneer but also serves as a beacon of inspiration for middle school readers interested in gender equality and racial justice. Pauli Murray's life reminds us that barriers are there to be broken, urging young readers to ponder, "What barriers will you break?"
