Brother Outsider: the life of Bayard Rustin, a film by Bennett Singer and Nancy Kates
The Club Theatre, RADA studios, Saturday 14 June at 3:00pm, Tickets – £5
Journey to justice inspires people, through learning from past and present human rights struggles, to take action for social justice. It’s first project will be a travelling exhibition about the US civil rights movement and its impact on the UK.
That dramatic story remains a universal symbol for people fighting for social justice everywhere and Bayard Rustin was at the heart of it.
Brother Outsider tells the story of Bayard Rustin, a most brilliant organiser of the US civil rights movement and an adviser to Martin Luther King. Rustin was African-American, gay, communist, a quaker/pacifist and the target of persecution on many fronts. He was also an anglophile, often visiting the UK in connection with gay and black liberation struggles and to support the peace movement.
Running Time 83 Minutes
Followed by discussion with Bennett Singer.
