Description

Our Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice couldn't be more thrilled & honored to welcome back Walter Naegle, Bayard Rustin's partner & our own BRCSJ Community Liaison, to discuss & sign his new book, "Troublemaker for Justice:
The Story of Bayard Rustin, The Man Behind the March on Washington" (co-authored with Jacqueline Jaeger Houtman & Michael Long).
Please join us at BRCSJ HQ, 21 Wiggins St. in Princeton, on Saturday 17 August @ 2PM to meet the fabulous Walter & get a signed copy of this inspirational new YA book that tells the tale of the man who planned the March in '63, inspired the Freedom Riders, & brought the principle of non-violence directly to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. himself!
Admission is free but please consider a donation to help us continue our good works of the people & great service to all our beautifully diverse communities.

As President Barack Obama effused, "Bayard Rustin had an unshakable optimism, nerves of steel, &, most importantly, a faith that if the cause is just & people are organized, nothing can stand in our way."
& about "Bayard Rustin: Troublemaker for Justice", Publishers Weekly, wrote in a starred review, "City Lights' first YA title urges its young readers to be, in the words of its subject, the 'angelic troublemakers' every community needs. . . . A long-overdue introduction to a fascinating, influential change maker."
