The Dream Is Freedom

Sarah Azaransky

Oxford University Press

This chapter describes landmark legal arguments Murray made about equal protection in the 1960s. Using the category of “Jane Crow,” she demanded that the law be responsive to the synthetic nature of identity. In so doing, Murray placed African American women's experiences at the center of democratic consideration. Despite her attempts to build coalitions, she found herself increasingly at odds with leaders of the feminist and Black Freedom movements.

Keywords:   Pauli Murray, equal protection, legal arguments, identity, African American women, feminist movement, Black Freedom movements
