It is amazing that the history of Ruskin has been so marginalized by the black community. They really do hate queers don't they. At least he refused to play their game even if they did rob him of his rightful place in history.

Winner of more than 25 awards. Illuminates the life of Bayard Rustin a key figure of the Civil Rights movement.
