A civil rights march. People standing arm in arm and walk in unity.


  •   George C. Wolfe
  •   United States

The architect of 1963’s momentous March on Washington, Bayard Rustin was one of the greatest activists and organizers the world has ever known. He challenged authority, never apologized for who he was, what he believed, or who he desired. And he did not back down. He made history, and in turn, he was forgotten.

Directed by DGA Award and five-time Tony Award winner George C. Wolfe (Lackawanna Blues, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom) and starring Emmy Award winner Colman Domingo in a towering and electrifying performance, Rustin shines a long overdue spotlight on the extraordinary man who, alongside giants like the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. (Aml Ameen), Ella Baker (Audra McDonald), Adam Clayton Powell Jr. (Jeffrey Wright) and NAACP leader Roy Wilkins (Chris Rock), dared to imagine a different world, and inspired a movement in a march toward freedom.
