Rustin is the first feature film to come from the partnership between Netflix and President Barack and Michelle Obama's Higher Ground.
Domingo is a Tony and Olivier nominee for his role in the 2011 musical The Scottsboro Boys. He won a 2022 Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series for his guest spot on the HBO Max series Euphoria. He will next be seen on screen as Mister in the film adaptation of the musical The Color Purple.
Fun Fact: In addition to his career as a political leader, Bayard Rustin was also an accomplished vocalist. As a young man, he appeared on Broadway in the ensemble of the short-lived 1940 musical John Henry, which starred Paul Robeson in the title role.
