Don't know anything about Bayard Rustin? Let's learn you up! Start here.
LBO's Doug Henwood was fortunate enough to watch the 1969 moon landing in the company of Bayard Rustin, a hero of the civil rights movement whose homosexuality prevented him from publicly receiving much of the praise he merited for all his hard labor. Rustin's suggested alternative to the Neil Armstrong "giant step" line makes me love him even more.
