Bayard Rustin ~ the Gay Socialist Pacifist Who Planned the 1963 March on Washington

During February we honor National Black History month.  Often the remarks focus on Dr. King.  Marco’s mom Adrian suggested to the worship team that we create an assembly on Bayard Rustin.  None of us knew the name, the man, nor anything about his life. We agreed that looking at this fascinating character is worth a morning.  On Sunday we remember the man behind the March on Washington who hasn’t been given his due because of decades of prejudice.
