Hey DivaGals! Today is the 60th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. To celebrate, Netflix has released the first trailer for Rustin, its upcoming biopic about Bayard Rustin, the architect behind this momentous movement, which took place on August 28, 1963. Colman Domingo stars in the title role.

A leader for civil and gay rights, Rustin only had a few weeks to pull together the march that would include Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech, Mahalia Jackson singing hymns and celebrity support from Harry Belafonte Jr. and Diahann Carroll.

“People had told me for years, when there’s a biopic about Bayard Rustin, you have to play it,” Dolman told EBONY in the digital magazine’s June cover exclusive. “I’ve been preparing to play this man for a very long time.”

See the trailer below! Watch Rustin in theaters on Nov. 3 and on Netflix Nov. 17.
