In conjunction with African American Heritage events during the month of February, WBAI’s “OUT-FM,” the progressive lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender radio program, which is listener-sponsored and non-commercial, presents “The Life and Times of Bayard Rustin.” Over the course of this two-hour special, “OUT-FM” will be exploring the fascinating life of Bayard Rustin, a gay African American pacifist revolutionary and civil rights activist. Rustin was a key advisor to Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. on non-violent direct action as a strategy for social change.
John Riley, Anthony Glover and Brad Taylor will interview four guests to discuss the life of this remarkable man: Rustin’s biographer John D’Emilio, War Resister League comrades Bill Sutherland and Dave McReynolds, and Rustin’s partner of 10 years, Walter Naegel.
MONDAY, FEBRUARY 2 ON 99.5 FM AT 11 A.M.
