Local Group “Virtual” Book Circle Gathering: Richmond, VA

June 25 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

CTTT-RVA 4th Thursday ONLINE Book Circle

This month we’ll discuss the book, Jane Crow:  The Life of Pauli Murray, by Rosalind Rosenberg.“Throughout her prodigious life, activist and lawyer Pauli Murray systematically fought against all arbitrary distinctions in society, channeling her outrage at the discrimination she faced to make America a more democratic country. In this definitive biography, Rosalind Rosenberg offers a poignant portrait of a figure who played pivotal roles in both the modern civil rights and women’s movements.”  Amazon link to purchase book

An editorial review found on Amazon: “A compelling read from start to finish….Like all the best biographies, this is more than just the story of a single figure. It is the story of America, told through the intersections of race, gender, and sexuality that have come to define it….Rosenberg’s Jane Crow makes not only an important contribution to the fields of Black, feminist, and trans history, but also offers us the timely reminder that, as Murray herself once wrote, ‘one person and a typewriter make a movement.'” –Lambda Literary
