About the film: The documentary Brother Outsider is an intimate portrait of life and work of civil rights activist Bayard Rustin. Rustin is best remembered as the organizer of the 1963 March on Washington, one of the largest nonviolent protests ever held in the US. 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.   Despite his many achievements, Rustin was silenced, threatened, arrested, beaten, imprisoned, and fired from important leadership positions, largely because he was gay. Brother Outsider chronicles both the triumphs and setbacks of Rustin’s remarkable 60-year career.

Nominated for two NAACP Spirit Awards, Brother Outsider has been described as “powerful and startling” (The Advocate), “rich in humanity” (, “beautifully crafted” (The Boston Globe), “poignant” (TIME), “thoroughly honest” (The Village Voice), and “marvelous” (The Wall Street Journal).
