"If we want a society without discrimination, then we must not discriminate against anyone in the process of building this society." -- Bayard Rustin

Bayard Rustin was a mentor to Dr. Martin Luther King, a champion for global human rights, and lead strategist for many American civil rights efforts. In 1963, Rustin was chief organizer of the historic March on Washington when 200,000 people peacefully gathered to demand racial equality and economic justice. Political attacks on Rustin's moral character and capabilities - in large part because he was openly gay - kept him in the shadows, but did not prevent Rustin from leaving a lasting impact on the world.
