Lawyer, human rights activist, author and priest Dr. Pauli Murray in an undated photo from Duke University in her hometown, Durham, North Carolina. She was involved in civil rights activities – sit-ins, marches, lawsuits, publishing – all her life, facing repeated discrimination on account of her race and/or her gender; many of the most famous colleges and universities refused to admit her, but she often landed on her feet in a better position than before. She became the first Black woman priest in the Episcopal Church in 1977.
