Standing in Proud Shoes


Abstract:
Raised by grandparents and an aunt in Durham, Pauli Murray was a civil rights pioneer, leading the first organized sit-in at a Washington, D.C., cafeteria in 1944, and being arrested in Virginia in 1940 for refusing to sit in the back of the bus. Blackburn profiles the life of this woman who was a civil rights lawyer, college professor, college vice president, and Deputy Attorney General of California.
