D'Emilio will present a first draft of a chapter from his projected biography of Bayard Rustin, and American civil rights leader and pacifist, best known for organizing the 1963 March on Washington. It covers the period 1952-1953, focuses on his arrest and conviction in California -- while he was on speaking tour -- on a public sex charge, and explores how the peace movement handled this.
