My BuzzFeed Interview with Walter Naegle, the Life Partner of Bayard Rustin, Chief Organizer of the March on Washington

August 28, 2013

Fifty years ago today, the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom descended upon the Capitol Mall. It took the attention of the United States and, a half century later, still ignites its imagination.

The chief organizer of that event was Bayard Rustin, an out gay man. I had the deep privilege to interview Mr. Rustin’s partner, Walter Naegle, for a long profile I wrote as my first piece for BuzzFeed.
