On Friday September 17th, Amazon Original Documentary MY NAME IS PAULI MURRAY comes exclusively to select theaters. Then, on Friday October 1st it will debut on AMAZON PRIME.

This is a knockout documentary and one worth a watch. She was a pioneer in fighting for social justice. An untold story of an American icon that changed history, the filmmakers of MY NAME IS PAULI MURRAY were educated about Pauli and their story by Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Our society is indebted to this dynamic activist and legal theorist who architected modern civil rights, and this film attempts to shine a brighter light on this important historical figure.

Directed by Betsy West and Julie Cohen
Produced by Talleah Bridges McMahon

Fifteen years before Rosa Parks refused to surrender her bus seat, a full decade before the U.S. Supreme Court overturned separate-but-equal legislation, Pauli Murray was already knee-deep fighting for social justice. A pioneering attorney, activist, priest and dedicated memoirist, Murray shaped landmark litigation—and consciousness— around race and gender equity. As an African American youth raised in the segregated South— who was also wrestling with broader notions of gender identity—Pauli understood, intrinsically, what it was to exist beyond previously accepted categories and cultural norms. Both Pauli’s personal path and tireless advocacy foreshadowed some of the most politically consequential issues of our time. Told largely in Pauli’s own words, My Name is Pauli Murray is a candid recounting of that unique and extraordinary journey.
