I Must Resist - Updating Bayard Rustin's Dream of Work for All

Michael Long, Author
Andrea Shorter, CEO, Atlas Strategies

The March on Washington was largely about jobs and equality. And gay activist Rustin was a driving organizer behind the march at the culmination of which Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his famous "I Have A Dream" speech. The community organizing legacies of Rustin and King continue today. Author Long talks in depth about this American patriot and the opportunities for civic engagement that exists every day for each of us.
