Make Pauli's story available 24/7 for all.

We find ourselves in difficult times. Challenges to human rights and democracy are prominent in the news every day. We need inspiration to resist these attacks and persist in our pursuit of justice and dignity for all.

Pauli Murray's fight for justice as a lawyer, poet, activist and Episcopal priest is a story of hope and resilience, just the kind of story we need now more than ever. We asked ourselves, how can we share her story with more people and what we came up with is an outdoor exhibit accessible 24/7 at our National Historic Landmark Pauli Murray Center. While we are finishing our renovation - why wait to give visitors and local school children a meaningful experience?

Our goal is to raise $20,000 this summer. MAKE A GIFT TODAY!

It will enable us to curate, design, and install this new exhibit and support other site developments such as landscaping and access for folks in wheelchairs.

As the only site in the state dedicated to a Black LGBTQ woman, Pauli Murray's story of hope is a powerful motivator. Let it shine for everyone, especially the next generation of "firebrand" activists.

With Durham's exponential growth and Pauli Murray's increasing national prominence, this exhibit will give more people a reason to visit and help us establish our site as an inviting place for the community to celebrate this important figure and family in Durham's and our nation's history. We hope you will join us!
