The following announcement was provided by Church of the Good Shepherd:

The award-winning documentary “My Name is Pauli Murray” will be shown on Sunday, October 23 at 2 p.m. at the Watertown Free Public Library. The film portrays the Rev. Dr. Pauli Murray, whose ideas strongly influenced Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s campaign for gender equality and Thurgood Marshall’s civil rights arguments.

The Rev. Dr. Murray was a non-binary Black activist, groundbreaking legal scholar, poet, and Episcopal priest who lived for a time in Greater Boston. 

The 2 p.m. screening will be hosted at the library by the Church of the Good Shepherd, Watertown. A post-screening discussion will be led by the Rev. Andrew Goldhor and the Rev. Dr. Yolanda Rolle, Youth and Young Adult Missioner in the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts. The Rev. Dr. Rolle has strong ties to Emmanual Church in Boston, which the Rev. Dr. Murray considered their spiritual home.

The film will be screened in the Watertown Savings Bank Meeting Room, which is wheelchair accessible. Contact for more information.
