Pauli Murray (1910-1985) was a very real, black, feminist, reverend, lawyer, and gender-nonconforming poet in the 1950s who wrote arguments that helped win cases such as Brown vs. the Board of Education. Pauli is arguably one of the most important people in the civil rights movement, so why don’t we know her name?

In this historical docudrama, Pauli Murray’s queerness is brought to the spotlight as Kalina, a graduate student, questions her professor’s assessment of a recent essay that she wrote for his class. This one-act play written by Ada A. explores the tensions and limitations of exploring the past using the words of the “present.”
