Who Is This Man? A State of the Re:Union Black History Month Special
Discover the words and wisdom of an unsung hero of the Civil Rights movement who changed the course of American history. MLK Jr.”s “I have a Dream” speech has become the shorthand of the Civil Rights Movement— but we might never have heard it, if it were not for another man, who’s largely been forgotten by history: Bayard Rustin. In this program hour, we explore the life and legacy of Mr. Rustin, a black, gay, Quaker who brought Gandhian non-violent protest to the Civil Rights movement in America.
