State Of The Re:Union: Bayard Rustin, Who Is This Man?

Martin Luther King Jr.'s iconic "I Have A Dream" speech has become shorthand for the civil rights movement. But we might never have heard it if not for a man who's largely been forgotten by history: Bayard Rustin. In this program, we explore the life and legacy of Rustin, a black, gay and Quaker man who brought Gandhian non-violent protest to the U.S. political movement.

For more information, photos and music of Bayard Rustin, visit the State of the Re:Union website.
