Exhibit Honors Pauli Murray

Down the street from Pauli Murray’s old neighborhood, an exhibit about the Episcopal saint’s life will be on display this fall. The Scrap Exchange will host “Pauli Murray: Imp, Crusader, Dude, Priest” in the Cameron Gallery at the building at the Lakewood shopping center in the West End.
