Leading the organizing and planning in honor of Bayard Rustin was Mandy Carter who will be joining CWT4R co-host Ina, Michelle and Terry Boi. Carter joined the show in February informing listeners of the upcoming events that occurred last week on August 28th. On the NBJC website entitled “Bayard Rustin 2013 Commemoration Project”. Mandy Carter, Bayard Rustin 2013 Commemoration Project National Coordinator, commented that "most people do not know that Bayard Rustin, an out Black gay man, was the key organizer for that groundbreaking event. America needs to know that Bayard existed. Black lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and same-gender-loving people need to know that Rustin stood firm in his identity and, by his very presence, challenged others in the Civil Rights Movement to overcome homophobia." Mandy provides information about Someone in History You Should Know. Join us on Can WE Talk for REAL, Wednesday Night at 10:30 eastern, 9:30 central, 8:40 mountain and 7:30 pacific time.

January 16, 2012 marks the celebration of the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. We honor Dr. King and the many heroes and s'heroes of the Civil Rights Movement for their demonstration of SOUL FORCE IN ACTION. We particularly acknowledge Bayard Rustin, the hidden brilliant strategiest behind the Nonviolent Direct Action of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC).
Rustin was a co-founder of SCLS and he taught the principles and practices of Nonviolent Direct Action to Dr. King and the key participants in the boycotts and marches between 1955 and 1968. Raised as a Quaker by his grandmother, Rustin was anchored in peaceful approaches to conscientious elimination injustice and inequality. As well, he traveled to India to explore the "Truth Force" (Satyagraha) practice of Mahatma Gandhi in the Indian Independence Movement.
Dr. Hazzard discusses Bayard Rustin's SOUL FORCE/TRUTH FORCE tactics and his fundamental principle summed up in this Rustin quote: "To be afraid is to behave as if the truth were not true.”
The crux of the conversation is "Activating Your SOUL FORCE as a Spiritual Activist.

Topic: Bayard Rustin's Vision Behind the MLK Dream March
Bayard Rustin was the architect of the Non-Violent Direct Action tactics of the Civil Rights Movement in America and the engineer of the famous March on Washington. Bayard Rustin taught Dr. King, Dr. Abernathe and the rest of SCLC nonviolent direct action strategies, and he played the central role in organizing the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. Rustin was kept in the background as some organizers considered him a liability because he was openly gay.
Today, we look at the Vision Behind the Dream Dr. King spoke about and we ask this question:
What is the difference between A DREAM, AVISION, AND AN ACT OF CREATION?
We ask this in the context of remembering the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.
I believe a dream hovers, a vision focuses, and an act of creation brings the thing into reality.
Join us to talk about what this means.
