Please join us on Saturday evening, February 2, to explore the life of this “unknown hero,” Bayard Rustin, and his exceptional work in advancing civil rights.


Rustin, an influential African-American Quaker, orchestrated the historic March on Washington in 1963.  He is credited with persuading Martin Luther King and his advisors to make Ghandian nonviolence an essential part of the civil rights movement. 


This year marks the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, which took place 100 years after the Emancipation Proclamation of 1863.  Join us in learning more about Bayard Rustin’s legacy, his struggle to live openly and productively as a gay man, and his continuing relevance to civil and human rights today.
