Celebrating Bayard Rustin
March 16, 6-8:30PM
UPW union hall (1426 N. School St., Honolulu)

FREE event honoring the centenary of African-American civil rights pioneer, non-violence organizer, and gay Quaker labor activist Bayard Rustin on the eve of what would have been his 100th birthday. 
Presented by Pride At Work Hawai'i; co-sponsors include UPW (AFSCME Local 646), UNITE HERE Local 5, UHPA, Pride Alliance Hawai‘i, and members of the Honolulu Friends Meeting (Quakers).  Pupus, drinks and popcorn will be provided; limited free parking is available at the hall. While the event is FREE, donations will be gratefully accepted.
Bayard Rustin mentored Martin Luther King in the use of Gandhian non-violence, organized the 1963 March on Washington, and helped build powerful coalitions between the labor and civil rights movements; but today he is largely forgotten or ignored.  Celebrating Bayard Rustin provides an opportunity to explore the life of a masterful, charismatic organizer and activist who endured multiple arrests and imprisonments - including in a federal prison for refusing military service during World War II and in a Southern jail for challenging segregation in 1949 - and helped establish or expand important national organizations like the Congress of Racial Equality, Southern Christian Leadership Council, War Resisters League, Fellowship of Reconciliation and the A. Philip Randolph Institue.
Celebrating Bayard Rustin will present his story with a showing of the award-winning 2003 documentary "Brother Outsider: the Life of Bayard Rustin", followed by an informal discussion, to provide additional understanding of the history of the US civil rights and anti-war movements (and how they were impacted by homophobia) and the ways that our multiple identities affect the work we do.
