Pauli Murray was involved in practically all the major developments that historians of the United States write about when they try to make sense of the twentieth century, especially the movements for social change that have been so central to its history. Civil rights, feminism, religion, literature, law, sexuality—no matter what the subject, there is Pauli Murray. Eight scholars—(Susan Ware, Patricia Bell-Scott, Glenda Gilmore, Rosalind Rosenberg, Susan Hartmann, Joyce Antler, Leila Rupp, and Verta Taylor)—tackle a different moment or theme in Murray's life. Each essay stands on its own, but when read collectively, they document Pauli Murray's central role in twentieth-century American women's history and are intended to spur future research.
