    This book should be titled, Everything You Never Knew About the Civil Rights Movement Of course, the biggest thing most people don t know about is the bed rock, salt mine work of Bayard Rustin Although his name is not included when we speak of this history, this remarkable man seems to have been connected to everyone else in it Miller does a fantastic job of giving us the whole story, complete with a frank discussion of Rustin s homosexuality It is easy to assume that Rustin was forced into obscurity by a homophobic society But as Miller reveals by including a portion of Rustin s graduation poem the limelight is something Bayard planned to shun No Easy Answers Bayard Rustin and the Civil Rights Movement can serve two purposes First, it is an excellent resource for school age students perhaps as early as grade 5 And, it is a good way to explore other civil rights issues The racial struggle in America shares many of the same characterisitcs as the gay struggle, the immigrant struggle, etc This book is both informative and entertaining As the 50th anniversary of Bayard Rustin s famous, well planned March on Washington looms closer, this book is must reading.
