In this segment we talk with Barbara Lau, director of the Pauli Murray Center for History and Social Justice about the life and legacy of Pauli Murray, whose legal research led to a groundbreaking gender equality case argued in the Supreme Court by Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Murray was close with Eleanor Roosevelt and one of the founders of the National Organization for Women.

She is also the lead developer of the Pauli Murray Center for History and Social Justice, a newly formed non-profit organization focused on transforming Murray’s childhood home into a center for history, education, the arts and social mobilization. Lau’s 20 years experience as a folklorist, curator, radio producer, and author includes producing To Buy the Sun, an original play about Pauli Murray; directing the Face Up: Telling Stories of Community Life community mural project; and curating two major exhibitions about Cambodian American traditions.
