Pauli Murray http://wunc.org en Saint Pauli http://wunc.org/post/saint-pauli <p>In the Episcopalian Church, it is customary for someone to be deceased for 50 years in order to become a saint. However when it came to Pauli Murray, the church’s General Convention chose to set aside the rule and include her in the book “<a href="https://www.churchpublishing.org/products/index.cfm?fuseaction=productDetail&amp;productID=7399" target="_blank">Holy Men, Holy Women: Celebrating the Saints</a>” (Church Publishing/ 2010), giving her status as a saint.

Her name is Pauli Murray. Murray was raised in Durham and went on to become a civil rights leader, co-founder of the National Organization for Women and the first African American woman to be ordained an Episcopal priest. Durham residents have been celebrating the 100th anniversary of Murray’s birth. There is a <a href="http://paulimurrayproject.org/">Pauli Murray Project</a> at Duke University named for her and even a play in her honor.&nbsp; Fri, 11 Feb 2011 22:50:00 +0000 Leoneda Inge 10176 at http://wunc.org Pauli Murray - Before Her Time
