The Montclair Friends Meeting will honor the life and legacy of Bayard Rustin together with a book-signing, talk and birthday celebration on Sunday, October 21, 2012, at 1 p.m. The book, "I Must Resist: Bayard Rustin’s Life in Letters" marks the centennial of Rustin’s birth, and presents more than 150 eloquent and impassioned letters to major progressives of his day. Rustin was a master strategist and tireless activist who brought Gandhi’s protest techniques to the American civil rights movement. Despite his accomplishments, he was silenced, threatened, arrested, beaten, imprisoned and fired from important leadership positions, largely because he was an openly gay man in a fiercely homophobic era. Michael G. Long, editor of the collection, will speak on “The Quaker Roots of Bayard Rustin’s Activism.” Michael Long is an associate professor of religious studies and peace and conflict studies at Elizabethtown College. Bayard Rustin’s surviving partner Walter Naegle will also attend the program. After the talk, Mr. Long will be available to sign books. The display and sale of I Must Resist, will be handled by Watchung Booksellers. The event, which will be held at the Friends Meetinghouse, 289 Park Street, Montclair NJ 07043, will be part of a celebration of the 80th anniversary of the cornerstone-laying of the Meetinghouse. The building is located at the corner of Park Street and Gordonhurst Avenue. (gluejar)
