Rustin Review | Colman Domingo Delivers a Powerful Performance in a Biographical Masterpiece

If you decide to research the life of civil rights activist Bayard Rustin, you'll find an intimidating mass of events and achievements. The newest biographical drama to come from Netflix, Rustin, covers what is probably considered his most famous contribution to American society — the March on Washington in 1963. Directed by George C. Wolfe and starring Colman Domingo, the film aims to shed light on an often overlooked (but vital) member of the civil rights movement. This is clear even from the titular character’s introduction, where he literally steps out of the shadows in order to encourage a reluctant Martin Luther King Jr. to stage a protest at the upcoming Democratic National Convention in 1960.
