ILLUMINATING BAYARD (The Mobile Tour) by Steve Broadnax III

Thursday, June 20, 2024
7pm show | 6:30pm doors
Ages 14+

Summary: Chief organizer of the 1963 March on Washington, West Chester native, and openly gay Civil Rights activist, Bayard Rustin was nearly written out of the history books. This People’s Light original short play soars with African-American spirituals and offers a glimpse into a purposefully hidden figure of our past and local hero. Come learn more in this 20 minute play as Rustin puts his faith in nonviolent resistance to the test, illuminating what it means to be branded a “troublemaker” within a system stacked against you.

Length: 25 minute performance + 10-20 minute facilitated talkback 
This FREE performance is made possible with support from the Chester County Community Foundation.
