Bayard Rustin: American Dreamer

$ 35.95

Author Jerald Podair examines the life and career of Bayard Rustin who shaped virtually every aspect of the modern civil rights movement as a theorist, strategist, and spokesman. Podair covers Rustin's 1912 birth in West Chester, Pennsylvania, his 1946 release from federal prison after serving two years for draft evasion, and beyond. After his release, Rustin threw himself into work on behalf of pacifism and racial integration, highlighted by his role as main organizer of the 1963 March on Washington.
