Pauli Murray: Intersectional Trailblazer

I’ve got another podcast for you, this time on Pauli Murray, an important woman not only in United Methodist Women history but U.S. history, featured in the June 2015 issue of response.

This podcast, from Stuff Mom Never Told You, focuses on  Ms. Murray herself, the “greatest intersectional trailblazer—and saint—you’ve never heard of,” as they describe her.  The podcast “marvels at the life, love and genius of this queer, African-American civil rights lawyer decades ahead of her time who legally shaped the civil rights and feminist movements and earned an historic Episcopal priesthood.”

You can listen to the podcast by pressing play below:

or you can listen to the story on the podcast’s website, where you’ll find extra info and resources on Ms. Murray. Don’t miss the shout out to The United Methodist Church’s Women’s Division (that’s us, just by a former name) at around the 30:30 mark! Enjoy!
