Bayard Rustin

Bayard Rustin was told to move to the back of a bus but stopped when a white child reached out to grab his tie, before being scolded by its mom. He thought, “I owe it to that child that it should be educated to know that blacks do not want to sit in the back”. He was then arrested and beaten.
