Artist's Statement

BAYARD RUSTIN & WALTER NAEGLE (1977 CE)

Bayard Rustin was the heart and soul of the black civil rights movement in America. He was Martin Luther King Jr.’s chief organizer, the pioneer of nonviolent resistance, and the man behind the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, during which Dr. King delivered his influential “I Have a Dream” speech. Rustin’s open homosexuality was contentious, and to this day his impact on the American landscape is all too often overlooked. Walter Naegle, Rustin’s partner until he died, is executor of the Bayard Rustin Estate.
