I am working on a project on homophobia in the Black Freedom Struggle. I was wondering if anyone knew of a bio of Pauli Murray and/or any other lesbian civil rights activists? Thanks.

You may want to take a look at Glenda Gilmore's "Defying Dixie." I know Murray is mentioned quite a bit in the book. You may find the information you seek by checking through her bibliography; I am sure she used Murray's personal papers, which could contain a bio.

I hear that Oxford is publishing a book on Pauli Murray that is largely biographical (though focused on her religious philosophy) that comes out in January. It's called The Dream Is Freedom, by Sarah Azaransky.

Thanks so much! I will have to get it when it comes out! On a personal note, does anyone have any clue why my first post garnered a minus button from somebody??!
