Image one: E-book titled Bayard Rustin: American Dreamer (2008) - synopsis: Bayard Rustin was a unique twentieth-century American radical voice. A homosexual, World War II draft resister, and ex-communist, he made enormous contributions to the civil rights, socialist, labor, peace, and gay rights movements in the United States, despite being viewed as an ‘outsider’ even by fellow activists. Rustin was a humanist who championed the disadvantaged and oppressed, regardless of identity. In Bayard Rustin: American Dreamer, Jerald Podair examines the life and career of a man who shaped virtually every aspect of the modern civil rights movement as a theorist, strategist, and spokesman.
Image two: E-book titled Somebody To Love: The Life, Death, and Legacy of Freddie Mercury (2016) - synopsis: Including interviews from Freddie Mercury’s closest friends in the last years of his life, along with personal photographs, Somebody To Love is an authoritative biography of a great man and performer. Within the pages of this book are previously unknown and startling facts about the singer and his life, moving details on his lifelong search for love and personal fulfilment, and of course his tragic contraction of a then killer disease in the mid-1980s. Woven throughout Freddie’s life is the shocking story of how the HIV virus came to hold the world in its grip, cruelly labelled “The Gay Plague.” The death of this vibrant and spectacularly talented rock star, shook the world of medicine as well as the world of music. Somebody to Love finally puts the record straight and pays detailed tribute to the man himself.
