From Reed aka Samuel Reed, III : I think Born A crime, will allow me to make some connection…

From Christina Cantrill : Queer Organizing Behind the Scenes
Principle: Queer Affirming
January- During January, we find it critical to lift up Bayard Rustin, one of the principal organizers behind the March on Washington which is crowned as one of MLK’s lasting achievements. To be queer-affirming means lifting up our queer ancestors who were at the foundation of our movements throughout time. This deepens the purpose of MLK day to understand that no one person makes a movement, highlighting how MLK’s legacy encompasses the contributions of many.

From Paul W. Hankins : There is an illustrated text about Bayard Rustin by Larry Dane Brimner. Very well done. Quick introduction.

From Paul W. Hankins : WE ARE ONE is the name of that book. I have it in 407, but I had to go find the title real quick.
