eta Creative Arts Foundation presents the musical production, Eye of the Storm, by McKinley Johnson chronicling the life of Bayard Rustin, a largely forgotten but immensely influential civil rights leader. Rustin was an African American political strategist who championed the rights of others while being denied his own because of his gay identity, which was highly controversial during his time.

Join us for a reception and panel discussion exploring these themes immediately preceding the play moderated by Center PhD candidate. Students, please RSVP to cpjmorgan@uchicago.edu for free play tickets and free transport to and from the theater.

Organized by eta Creative Arts Foundation in partnership with the Office of Civic Engagement, and CSRPC
