More about Brother Outsider
The award-winning documentary Brother Outsider chronicles the public and private lives of Bayard Rustin, the visionary activist and strategist often called “the invisible man” of the civil rights movement. A tireless crusader for social justice, disciple of Gandhi, atomic weapons protestor, 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 film reveals the price Rustin paid for his honesty, charting both the triumphs and setbacks of his remarkable 60-year career. Village Voice commended the film for “vividly bring[ing] back to life a man who deeply and brilliantly influenced the course of the civil rights and peace movements.”
