Course Details

Bayard Rustin was one of the most important civil, human and labour rights activists. African American and gay, his life’s work was in standing up for marginalised people. He was an important influence on Martin Luther King, persuading him to adopt the principles of non-violence resistance in the struggle for civil rights. This online course will explore how he put his Quaker faith into action. A study of his writings and songs, as well as literature, film and art inspired by him, will allow us to approach his life from a variety of perspectives.
This course can be completed in your own time, although we recommend setting aside 2-3 hours a week.
Each week there will be video, audio and written materials for you to engage with, and forums for you to share reflections and ask questions.
This course is aimed at anyone with an interest in Quakers and/or issues of social justice, but no previous knowledge of Quakerism is required.

Nicola Hirschfelder and Martin Layton
