Bayard Rustin: The Man Behind the Dream
This is the flier from my first event at DePaul University. I am still amazed at how beautiful a job Heidi Gosen, the designer, did. You can check out her work at www.heidigosen.com.
The event was a screening of "Brother Outsider: The Life of Bayard Rustin." After the film we discussed the American collective consciousness concerning the Civil Rights Movement. Some of the questions framing the event were: who gets erased from history? How does Bayard Rustin's sexual orientation inform his role?
I was/am so pleased with how this event turned out only a few short weeks ago. I look forward to more opportunities.
