The Life And Times Of Bayard Rustin

BY JOHN D'EMILIO ABOUT BAYARD RUSTIN

Brief Description:
"[Quaker] Bayard Rustin became famous for working behind the scenes. The tactics of public protest that became that became familiar in the 1960s - marches on Washington, Freedom Rides, sit-ins, passive resistance, civil disobedience - were pioneered and refined by Rustin two decades earlier. Indeed, through his decisive influence on Martin Luther King Jr., Rustin created the model for the social movements of post-World War II America - civil rights, antiwar, gay liberation, feminist." - Michael Anderson, New York Times
