Bayard Rustin, one of the biggest activists of nonviolence during the Civil Rights Era is best known as the organizer of the 1963 March on Washington, one of the largest nonviolent protests ever held in the United States. Rustin was silenced, threatened, beaten, and imprisoned, because he was an openly gay man in a fiercely homophobic era. His focus on civil and economic rights and his belief in peace, human rights, and the dignity of all people remain as relevant today as they were in the 1950s and 60s.
