It's always the right time to learn more about our Queer Black leaders, but as we celebrate Pride this month, it is perhaps the ideal time to shine the light on the accomplishments of Bayard Rustin. Trouble Maker for Justice teaches us about the outstanding life of Bayard (rhymes with "fired") who is largely absent from history books likely due to his being openly gay. Both his organization of the March of Washington and life work fighting for justice for all people deserve recognition. Please enjoy this short-but-thorough 150 page biography and get inspired to make a positive impact on the world.
