I highly recommend this biography about civil rights leader Bayard Rustin! Largely unknown during his time due to his sexuality, Mr. Rustin was a follow of Gandhi, influenced MLK Jr. (Rustin organized the "March on Washington"), and took part in numerous civil rights struggles during his lifetime. Awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2013, this formerly unsung hero deserves any accolades and recognition he is destined to receive.
