February Book

The Firebrand and the First Lady: Portrait of a Friendship: Pauli Murray, Eleanor Roosevelt, and the Struggle for Social Justice
By Patricia Bell-Scott, Ph.D., 1984−85 AAUW American Fellow (@PBell_Scott)

When 28-year-old Pauli Murray wrote a letter to President Roosevelt and his wife, Eleanor, protesting southern segregation, she could not have known that it would start a friendship that would last for 25 years. But that is exactly what happened after First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt responded to the letter. The Firebrand and the First Lady provides the first substantive study of how two social justice activists — one the granddaughter of a mixed-race slave, the other a woman whose ancestry made her eligible for membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution — formed a relationship that changed the course of race and racism in the United States.
