James Murray Made His Transition
Posted on January 16, 2014 by India Artis, The Crisis Magazine
The NAACP mourns the passing of our colleague, friend and brother, Mr. James Murray. As the sole archivist and librarian at the NAACP's Henry Lee Moon Library, James Murray took pride and pleasure in organizing the recorded achievements and legacies of our great organization. For him, the job was not just a profession, it was his passion and personal fun.
"Bey Bey" as he was known, was an encyclopedia of Black culture and world history. His knowledge, dedication, wit, and infectious humor are our constant reminders of this wonderful man.
He will be remembered for his immeasurable contributions to the NAACP and to the lives of all of those he touched.
The homegoing services for Mr. Murray are as follows:
Friday, January 17, 2014 - 2-8PM Howell Funeral Home, 4600 Liberty Heights Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21207 (410) 664-6800
The family will hold a private funeral for Mr. Murray, this Saturday, January 18th at the Gwynn Oak United Methodist Church in Baltimore, Maryland.
Expressions of condolences may be addressed to his son, Mr. Ira S. Murray. Please include your messages in the comment area below--and we'll forward them to his family.
