Didn't finish, but the first 140 pages were great! This book was such an interesting meditation on intersectionality and how women from different backgrounds necessarily use their power in different ways. I may not come back to this book, but I'll certainly read more by / about Pauli Murray.

Dense with historical information. I picked this up because it was one of the options for summer reading for my sophomore. It took me forever to get through. I finally tried it in audio format and could engage with the material better that way. This is good stuff for young people to learn, but I just didn't feel like the writing would pull them in.

I love super specific history books, and this is a really great look at two great women. Too many civil rights movement books sleep on Pauli Murray, who did a ton of activist and legal work, and who also should be more talked about in the queer community. If you're not familiar with her, this is a great introduction to her life's works and challenges.

I'm definitely adding more reading about and by both of these women to my list.… (mere)

Pros: This is a very interesting book. I knew virtually nothing about Pauli Murray and I am now practically the president of her fan club. It is worth reading this book just to discover how enormously cool and accomplished this woman was.

Cons: I almost feel like Eleanor Roosevelt was added as a hook to get people to read about Pauli Murray. I thought this would be more of a dual biography, but it's mostly about Pauli Murray with a little bit of ER sprinkled in. Again, I loved learning about Pauli Murray! It just didn't feel like this was the book I thought I was going to read, and honestly I think I might have preferred a straight-up bio of Murray. Also, the writing is not stellar, below the level I would expect for an NBA longlistee.… (mere)
