Product Description


Jerald Podair's lively engaging portrait of a key organizer in the freedom struggle puts Bayard Rustin's behind-the-scenes work out front for a new generation. Illuminating Rustin's struggle to make real America's promise of 'equality and justice for all,' Podair pushes an unsung hero out of the shadows. His work, at once scholarly and widely accessible, adds a biographer's depth to the key conflicts and triumphs of Rustin's complex, exciting, and sobering life story. -- Wesley Hogan, Virginia State University

Poorly researched biography of Bayard Rustin 7 April 2013
By Rachelle Horowitz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Bayard Rustin was a great man and the organizer of the 1963 March on Washington. In this the 50th Anniversary of the March and the 101st year of his birth he deserves far better that what Podair has "dreamed" up . It contains too many factual errors for me to go into here. Instead I suggest people read, "Lost Prophet" by John D"Emillio or "Bayard Rustin and the Civil Rights Movement" by Dan Levine.

I am actually horrified that a college professor could do such poor research and that it might be pawned off on even his students.
