The Bayard Rustin Community Breakfast maintains a tradition of commemorating and celebrating the life and work of Bayard Rustin, one of the unsung heroes of the Civil Rights Movement. Created by AIDS Action Committee 28 years ago, the Breakfast recognizes the roles of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people from communities of color in the fight against AIDS. The Breakfast is an inspiring event, drawing on the spirit of Bayard Rustin’s work in human rights, civil rights, and social activism. It is the longest-running event honoring Bayard Rustin’s legacy in the country.
The event includes entertainment and the awarding of honors in the names of Bayard Rustin and Belynda Dunn, an activist and former staff member of AIDS Action who contributed greatly to the fight against AIDS and related illnesses here in Boston.
