William DiCanzio's new play, "Rustin and the March," on Bayard Rustin and his important role in organizing the 1963 March on Washington, is being performed in open readings in and around the city of Philadelphia this year. Madeline Schaefer attended one of these readings and spoke with DiCanzio, the play's future director, Benjamin Lloyd, and the play's leading actor, Frank X, about the power and legacy of Bayard Rustin's message of nonviolence.

White Pines Productions, located in Elkin's Park, is hoping to stage the play in the coming year. To find out more about how you can help this play make it to the stage, visit
