BAYARD Rustin, civil rights leader, and architect of the 1963 March
on Washington for Jobs and Freedom recorded two 10-inch LPs for
the FELLOWSHIP of RECONCILIATION in the early 1950.

The LPs are scarce, but have been re-incarnated on cassette and CD.

The most recent is on PARNASSUS which has also issued other interesting CDs in their BLACK SWANS series.
