Nominated for the Grand Jury Award at the Sundance Film Festival, Brother Outsider has been described as "powerful and startling" (The Advocate), "rich in humanity" (africana. com), "beautifully crafted" (Boston Globe), "poignant" (TIME), "thoroughly honest" (Village Voice), and "marvelous" (Wall Street Journal).

Mr. Rustin, a Quaker, once wrote: 'The principal factors which influenced my life are 1) nonviolent tactics; 2) constitutional means; 3) democratic procedures; 4) respect for human personality; 5) a belief that all people are one.'"

Description from www.Rustin.org
 

Brother Outsider illuminates the life and work of Bayard Rustin, a visionary activist and strategist who has been called "the unknown hero" of the civil rights movement. A tireless crusader for justice, a disciple of Gandhi, a mentor to Martin Luther King Jr., and the architect of the legendary 1963 March on Washington, Rustin dared to live as an openly gay man during the fiercely homophobic 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s. Brother Outsider reveals the price that Rustin paid for this openness, chronicling both the triumphs and setbacks of his remarkable 60-year career.
