In January 2016 The Greensboro Mural Project partnered with the youth group at New Garden Friends Meeting to create a mural for their gathering space. Collaborative discussions slowly lead to what was an obvious decision, to create a mural featuring Bayard Rustin. Bayard Rustin organized the March on Washington in 1963, however is all too often left out of history for being Black, Gay, and Quaker. Core member of The Greensboro Mural Project, John Hunter, took the lead as artist and designer on this mural.
