BLUEPRINTS TO FREEDOM: AN ODE TO BAYARD RUSTIN (Play)

Written by Michael Benjamin Washington
January 20 - February 12, 2017

Set during the sweltering political and racial heat of 1963, Bayard Rustin - an openly gay, Black proponent of non-violent civil disobedience who was jailed several times for refusal to register for the World War II draft and for homosexuality - is assigned to orchestrate an unprecedented march for jobs and freedom. Exiled from the Civil Rights movement by both internal and external forces, Rustin grapples with his last chance for professional restoration and spiritual redemption as he masterminds 'a tribute to the ancestors' exactly one century after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation.
