Key Quote: “I think sometimes you choose a project, but more often than not, I think a project chooses you. There was something about Bayard Rustin’s complexity. There was something about the fact that he was so crucial and so phenomenal and then so forgotten that I found incredibly compelling and very moving and very powerful, and I wanted to live inside of that world.” – George C. Wolfe
