Activist Bayard Rustin faced racism and homophobia as he helped change the course of Civil Rights history by orchestrating the 1963 March on Washington. As the architect of the momentous march, Rustin was one of the greatest activists and organizers the world has ever known. He challenged authority, never apologized for who he was, what he believed or who he loved. And he did not back down. He made history, and, yet, was all but forgotten. Rustin shines a long overdue spotlight on this extraordinary man who, alongside giants like the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., Adam Clayton Powell, Jr., and Ella Baker, dared to imagine a better world and inspired a movement to imagine it along with him.
