About This Show

Brian Freeman presents Civil Sex, an exploration of the life and times of Bayard Rustin, a pacifist and a leader in the civil rights movement whose sexuality set him and the movement at continual odds. The chief organizer of the March on Washington, Rustin served as an assistant to Martin Luther King, Jr. Based on interviews with his friends, lovers, colleagues and news documents, this production gives us a new picture of this complex man and his fascinating contemporaries, from Thurmond to James Baldwin to Malcolm X.
