Happy Birthday, Bayard Rustin!

Bayard Rustin, civil rights pioneer and the “intellectual engineer” of the civil rights movement, was born 105 years ago today in West Chester, Pennsylvania. You can read his story in We Are One: The Story of Bayard Rustin.

WAO

We need more leaders like Bayard today. Especially today.
