Michael G. Long, associate professor of peace and conflict studies at Elizabethtown College and editor of I Must Resist: Bayard Rustin’s Life in Letters, will discuss the importance of Rustin as a strategist in the civil rights movement, the challenges posed by his identity as an openly gay man, and lessons we can draw from his Quaker-inspired quest for peace with justice. After the talk, there will be refreshments, and guests will have an opportunity to create a peace pinwheel as a visual reminder of the event and as a sign of their commitment to the principles of nonviolence.
