    As exemplified in this biography Bayard Rustin was a complicated person From the very beginning of his life he was a committed pacifist and was jailed for refusing to serve in World War II He was an active member in various pacifist groups some of them uakerHe also in his uest for racial justice became drawn to civil rights groups He was a great behind the scenes organizer and would expedite and facilitate events He built up a huge network of contacts between the various civil rights groups and peace groups like CORE NAACP SCLC and the emerging SNCC Each of these groups saw themselves as being the prominent voice of their people so Bayard Rustin had to weave through the various personalities to accomplish consensus After the Montgomery bus boycott he was instrumental in drawing up the charter of SCLC Southern Christian Leadership Conference which Martin Luther King Jr became the leader ofBayard Rustin was the main organizer of the very memorable 1963 March on Washington He successfully coalesced all the old and new civil rights groups to unify for this as well as the over two hundred thousand attendeesBayard Rustin travelled extensively for peace groups – to Europe India and AfricaAs mentioned Bayard Rustin was a complicated man; even though born in Pennsylvania he cultivated a pronounced British accent and was a snappy dresser He was also gay which accounts for some of the antagonism he felt from some of the civil rights groups so those based in the southern United States But he experienced no such condemnation from Martin Luther King For many reasons Bayard Rustin was under surveillance from the FBI he did have some affiliations in his younger days with the communist party This was at a time when black people were being prevented from voting in southern states and when they were being lynched but the FBI was interested in persecuting potential communistsThis biography gives us many personal insights into who Bayard Rustin was and his relationship to many different people and activist groups I would not go so far as to say the book is fawning on him but I got the impression that Bayard Rustin was somewhat of a snob But a very talented and gregarious one

    Bayard Rustin's death in 1987 The New York Post editorialized marked the passing of the last great apostle of the creed of nonviolence Author Jervis Anderson brings him to lifeWithout Rustin the 20th century civil rights movement in the United States would have unfolded very differently Rustin influenced Martin Luther King by guiding King as he incorporated into the movement the Gandhian principles of non violence that because its most notable and effective feature Rustin gave King valuable strategic advice on everything from the Montgomery bus boycott that started King's career to the sanitation strike in Memphis at which King was assassinated in 1968Rustin was the architect of the pivotal 1963 March on Washington that marked the movement's transformation into an effective legislative force He convinced a reluctant King to speak which provided the platform from which King ringingly proclaimed I have a dream Rustin's foresight and meticulous planning helped in the days before marches on Washington became familiar rituals to prevent the violence that many feared would mar the March and set back efforts to end racial discrimination Life magazine then one of the most important media outlets in the world recognized Rustin's vital role when it put him on the cover of its issue about the March along with Rustin's mentor A Philip Randolph who had envisioned a similar march in 1941 but called it off at the reuest of Franklin RooseveltRustin rarely was lit by the kind of spotlight shone by Life Mostly he tried to avoid publicity because he feared that his homosexuality and socialism would be used against the movement by its opponents And they were especially by Adam Clayton Powell the US Representative who wanted the spotlight for himself and Strom Thurmond the US Senator who fought to preserve segregationThe historian Jervis Anderson worked for Rustin from 1966 to 1968 His Bayard Rustin Troubles I've Seen a Biography is a detailed affectionate account of Rustin's complex personality and his varied work crusading for peaceful social change around the world Until someone writes the comprehensive multi volume biography of Rustin that his character and career warrant Anderson's Bayard Rustin holds his place in history wellThe book falls short of being a top tier biography because it slights its subject's own words Anderson calls Rustin one of the articulate and engaging public speakers of his time and says that with his clear and crisp and intellectually sparkling presentations he had no eual in lucid instructive extemporaneous oratory But he leaves us to take his word for this most of the time The biography Bayard Rustin which uotes its subject in detail about his beloved antiues than about his beliefs would have been richer if Anderson had made better use of Rustin's own wordsRustin was born and raised in a family of prominent uakers in Pennsylvania His family history was complicated The people he thought were his parents actually were his grandparents One of his aunts was his mother The family maintained the deception to avoid the scandal of an out of wedlock birthIt was not until he was in his mid 60s that Rustin found lasting romantic love Anderson gives extensive consideration to Rustin's homosexuality and how it affected his work but he makes only fleeting mention of Rustin's partner Walter Naegle A slightly better source on their relationship is John D'Emilio's Lost Prophet The Life and Times of Bayard RustinWhen he died at age 75 in 1987 Rustin was revered for his involvement in the US civil rights movement and his wide ranging work around the globe including efforts to encourage nuclear disarmament and to secure independence for African nations It wasn't always like that In the late 1960s his consensus activism was too moderate for radicals demanding black power They regarded Rustin with skepticism even scornThis painfully echoed an earlier disappointment Before the Republican and Democratic presidential conventions in 1960 Adam Clayton Powell threatened to leak fabricated allegations of a sexual affair between Rustin and King Powell demanded that King distance himself from the man who helped him develop from a regional leader into an international icon King acuiesced and was rebuked by James Baldwin and others who rallied to Rustin's defense King and Rustin worked together after that and Rustin accompanied King to Oslo in 1964 when King received the Nobel Prize for Peace but their friendship never fully recoveredMore than a decade earlier when Rustin first met the Kings he offered a letter of introduction Coretta Scott King waved it away She remembered him from when he spoke at her high school about pacifism in the early 1940s She said I know you Mr RustinAnderson's Bayard Rustin Troubles I've Seen A Biography allows the rest of us to know him also


  3. Laura Laura says:

    This book gave me a profound respect and admiration for Bayard Rustin an intellectual man a Renaissance man of many talents who devoted his life to the causes he believed—pacifism democratic socialism after a brief time with the Communists in the 390s and civil rights He planned and orchestrated the March on Washington and provided great counsel to MLK Jr and many other civil rights leaders He remained committed to his beliefs during the turbulent times of the late 60s and early 70s when so many went to extremes This book addresses the effect that being gay had on his careerThe one criticism that I have of this book is that it dealt very little with Rustin’s personal life particularly his great friendship with the Gils and the partner of his last decade of his life Walter Naegle


  4. Chris Chris says:

    Although I am a big fan of Rustin I'm not a big fan of this biography It's written by someone who is too deeply emersed in the scene who thinks paragraphs of names are interesting and who assumes knowledge of people and events that someone who doesn't know the civil rights movement well will not haveMore damnimgly I don't really feel like I have a good handle on the man His first political actions come out of nowhere and his romantic life is never touched on although his sex life gets a few mentionsIn the last uarter of the book the author gives up on the idea of a chronology and just discusses Rustin's attitude towards topicsA bit of a disappointing chore especially considering how fascinating Rustin is looking forward to a better biography coming out one day


  5. SUSAN GLASER SUSAN GLASER says:

    Bayard Rustin was one of the best nonviolent organizers of the entire civil rights movement bar none He was brilliantly schooled in Gandhian nonviolence He knew how to do it He was a listener and a strategist Whatever he was involved in happened Rustin was a gay man and this was used against him often so he usually stood in the background of many events that were his shining lights This is a good book about him as a public person In his later years he did become a spokesperson for gay and lesbian rights


  6. Brian Brian says:

    At long last I've found the hero I've been seeking Rachlin remembered a church garden party attended by 'nice old ladies and gentleman' at which Rustin 'taking one look at those nice people' launched joyously into a speech about revolution 'I couldn't believe my ears' Rachlin said later 'I think Bayard had recently heard a speech in Philadelphia espousing the Trotskyite point of view and decided to try that stuff on the old folks He nearly scared them out of their wits But it was really one of the antics he loved to play on people'


  7. Connie Kronlokken Connie Kronlokken says:

    Terrific book detailing the civil rights movement and the part Rustin played in it A most extraordinary person Bayard Rustin was in the background of the fight against war against the development of thermonuclear weapons and played an influential role in Martin Luther King's nonviolent civil rights protests He was a troubleshooter an itinerant strategist tactician and organizer never wanting power itself I enjoyed looking at recent history through the lens of his life


  8. Tom Costello Tom Costello says:

    This biography was better than I had been led to believe Many people I respect think John D'Emilio's Lost Prophet to be superior But Anderson does a fine job except the analysis is too brief in the last chapters


  9. Matt Lechel Matt Lechel says:

    Not the most thrilling read ever but damn what a story Bayard Rustin lived an incredible life A behind the scenes leader and intellectual of the highest degree

    excellent
