Reviews - What do customers think about Becoming "America's Problem Child": An Outline of Pauli Murray's Religious Life and Theology?
A Major Black Feminist Sep 17, 2009
The title of the autobiography by Pauli Murray (1910-1985), "The Autobiography of a Black Activist, Lawyer, Priest and Poet," indicates who the co-founder of the National Organization for Women (NOW) was. She could not study at the University of North Carolina because of her race nor at Harvard because she was a female, but at Yale she became the first of her race to earn a J.S.D.
In his book, Rice University's Anthony B. Pinn surveys Murray's profound thoughts and clarifies her religious views, which were not orthodox. Pinn's lucid but short and precise work outlines her beliefs. Murray was never able to accept injustice, saying, "Perhaps it is because of this I am America's problem child, and will continue to be." Theologians and students of religion are not the only ones who will find Pinn's book helpful. An atheistic Unitarian and humanities humanist, I am gratified to have come across this inspiring "problem child," whom I will attempt to publicize and bring to a much wider audience.
