Thursday July 12th 7 p.m. Film night " Brother Outsider: The Life of Bayard Rustin" This 2003 documentary film has introduced millions of viewers around the world to the life and work of Bayard Rustin — a visionary strategist and activist who has been called "the unknown hero" of the civil rights movement. A disciple of Gandhi, a mentor to Martin Luther King Jr., and the architect of the 1963 March on Washington, Rustin dared to live as an openly gay man during the fiercely homophobic 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. The recipient of more than 25 awards and honors, BROTHER OUTSIDER has been shown at The United Nations, The Kennedy Center, and for members of Congress, as well as at hundreds of schools, community forums, labor gatherings, faith organizations, and film festivals.
