Films at AAMP: Brother Outsider
Saturday, January 13, 3 p.m.
Screening included with $2 museum admission!
During his 60-year career as an activist, organizer and «troublemaker,» Bayard Rustin's passionate belief in Gandhi's philosophy of nonviolence drew Martin Luther King Jr. and other leaders to him in the 40's and 50's.
In 1963, Rustin brought his unique skills to the crowning glory of his civil rights career: his work organizing the March on Washington, the biggest protest America had ever seen. But his open homosexuality forced him to remain in the background, marking him again and again as «brother outsider.»
This screening will be followed by an expert led panel discussion on Rustin and his contemporaries.
