An unsung hero of the civil rights movement
In 1963, Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech at the March on Washington to nearly a quarter million people. None of it would have been possible without the march's chief organizer – a man named Bayard Rustin. Christina Greer details his life of advocacy as a leader in the Civil Rights Movement, and the challenges he faced as an openly gay Black man. [Directed by Anton Bogaty, narrated by Christina Greer, music by Bamm Bamm Wolfgang].
