YC Facts: Bayard, A New Musical (Part 2)

August 16, 2019

Our interns go behind the scenes of "Bayard: A New Musical." This summer production celebrates the life of Bayard Rustin. The musical transports the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960's into the progressive intersectionality of 2018, recognizing the unity of the struggle of all oppressed folk... including our LGBTQ brothers and sisters! It also, recognizes the critical, timely impact of removing Bayard Rustin’s personage from the shadows, into the light of his powerful presence as a gay African-American Civil Rights icon.
