Bayard Rustin Honored?
Copy of oil painting by artist P. Pamela Patrick as provided by Genesis.

Civil rights leader and organizer, Bayard Rustin (wikipedia)
(1912-1987) was honored by his hometown by having a new school named for him on Saturday, September 9, 2006 in West Chester, Pennsylvania.

It bears mentioning that Mr. Rustin was an out, proud gay man. This is not mentioned in the biography. Rustin was openly gay and advocated on behalf of gay and lesbian causes in the latter part of his career.

A year before his death in 1987, Rustin said:
"The barometer of where one is on human rights questions is no longer the black community, it's the gay community. Because it is the community which is most easily mistreated."
The "source" link at the bottom of this post will take readers to the school's website and its biography of the leader and namesake.
