Pauli Murray was a pioneering Black attorney, activist, priest, poet and memoirist who wrestled with gender identity and shaped landmark litigation – and consciousness – around race and gender equity, and fought heavily in the battle for social justice. Told mainly using Murray’s own words, this filmic portrait reveals a tenacious spirit; Pauli Murray is a name you will not forget.

My Name is Pauli Murray will be followed by a Q&A with Betsy West, Julie Cohen and Cinque Northern which will be shown after the screening and be available on Selects. This can also be viewed below.

Join directors Betsy West and Julie Cohen in this year's BAFTA Masterclass, presented as part of the Talks programme.

Also screening in select cinemas across the UK. More info here.
