Jill Raitt Lecture: “Pauli Murray’s Theological Legacy and Resources for a Common Freedom Struggle" with Sarah Azaransky of University of San Diego

Wednesday, February 27, 2013 - 12:20pm to 1:30pm
0016 Westbrook
Nikki Raye Rice (nikki.rice@duke.edu) or Logan Mehl-Laituri (logan.mehl.laituri@duke.edu)

The Duke Divinity Women's Center is sponsoring the annual Jill Raitt Lectures featuring Sarah Azaransky, a postdoctoral teaching fellow in theology and religious studies at the University of San Diego. Her lecture will be on “Pauli Murray’s Theological Legacy and Resources for a Common Freedom Struggle."

In 1977, Murray was the first African American woman to be ordained as an Episcopal priest, and in 2012 she was elevated to be an Episcopal saint. She is a native of Durham, N.C.

Azaransky's research focuses on religion in American public life, specifically on issues of citizenship, social justice, and civil rights. Her book, The Dream is Freedom: Pauli Murray and American Democratic Faith (2011) focuses on Murray, a critical figure at the intersection of the civil rights and women’s movements, who grounded her calls for democratic transformation in Christian concepts of reconciliation and the coming kingdom.

Every year, the Women's Center invites a distinguished speaker to the Divinity School. This annual formal lecture is in honor of Jill Raitt, the first tenured female faculty at the school.
