My Name is Pauli Murray: Special Pre-Screening

On campus, information provided after RSVP

Join the American Constitution Society for a special pre-screening of the new documentary My Name is Pauli Murray. The documentary covers the life of Pauli Murray, who received their L.L.M. from Berkeley Law in 1945. Pauli was a Black nonbinary lawyer, civil rights activist, and poet who is credited with influencing Thurgood Marshall, Martin Luther King, Jr., RBG, and others.


This event is being co-sponsored by the Berkeley Journal of Gender, Law & Justice, the Berkeley Journal of African-American Law & Policy, the Henderson Center for Social Justice, Law Students of African Descent, Queer Caucus, Womxn of Berkeley Law, and the Womxn of Color Collective. 


The first fifty people to RSVP will be able to join us for a pre-screening dinner at 6 pm on Steinhart Courtyard (please note: food plans are pending and subject to change under school restrictions). The screening of the 90-minute documentary will follow in the Warren Room. Everyone else interested in attending virtually will be sent a time-limited link to stream the film.


If you require an accommodation for effective communication (ASL interpreting/CART captioning, alternative media formats, etc.) in order to fully participate in this event, please contact Amy Reavis at with as much advance notice as possible.
