Murray’s funeral occurred at Washington’s National Cathedral and her ashes were laid to rest in Brooklyn’s Cypress Hills Cemetery, alongside her two aunts and her partner. Murray’s life is historically significant for her many remarkable deeds in public life, but Murray’s extensive personal papers also provide valuable insights into the struggle to survive multiple forms of oppression.
