Black History Month: Anne Murray

Anna Murray was the first African-American woman to be ordained as an Episcopal priest.
This fiery woman exchanged letters with both Eleanor and Franklin Roosevelt for many years. She worked closely with icons like Thurgood Marshall and Rosa Parks, and was appointed by President Kennedy to the Presidential Commission on the Status of Women in the 1960s, where her work focused on “Jane Crow”: how discrimination against black people particularly and deeply affected black women, and the ways in which sexism and racism combined to affect black women.
