Sonia Pressman Fuentes

In April 2016, the National Park Service declared the childhood home of the Rev. Dr. Pauli  Murray in Durham, N.C. a National Historic Landmark. At that time, there was an exhibition inside the home, part of which was a wall containing the names of people, including Sonia's maiden name, found in one of Pauli's address books. Pauli was a friend and colleague of Sonia's at the EEOC (Equal Employment  Opportunity Commission), where Pauli was a consultant in the Research Department. Pauli was an activist for the rights of women and African Americans, a lawyer, a poet, an author, and the first African  American Episcopal woman priest.

Sonia received these two photographs from Patricia Bell-Scott, author of the 2016 book, The Firebrand and the First Lady: Portrait of a Friendship: Pauli Murray, Eleanor Roosevelt, and the Struggle for Social Justice.
