The official trailer for Netflix’s eagerly-anticipated Bayard Rustin biopic starring Fear the Walking Dead‘s Colman Domingo has finally landed – and the civil rights activist’s identity as a gay Black man takes centre stage. The already acclaimed film – directed by Tony winner George C. Wolfe and executive produced by the Obamas charts events leading up to the historic 1963 civil rights march in Washington DC, where Martin Luther King delivered his famed “I Have a Dream” speech. Despite playing a pivotal role as “the architect of 1963’s momentous March on Washington” – attended by more than a quarter of a million people – Rustin’s contribution to the civil rights movement was largely downplayed at the time due to his vocal identity as a gay man.
