"Bayard Rustin: The Man Behind the Dream" - A Dinner & Concert Fundraiser

- $20 – $35
- All Ages
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s shadow looms large--so large that the names of some of his close colleagues in the civil rights movement remain unheralded. Bayard Rustin is not a household name today, but he was the organizer of the 1963 March on Washington, among his long and broad lifetime of activism for the rights of people in all walks of life. In addition to his work as an activist, Rustin was a musician, an art collector and an athlete -- all elements which describe a man who was shunned for another characteristic: his sexuality.
In an evening celebrating this monumental figure, The Quire invites the community to join us for dinner before the show, and then stay to hear the story of Bayard Rustin as told in this recently commissioned work.
