Five years in the making and the winner of more than 25 awards, Brother Outsider illuminates the public and private lives of Bayard Rustin, a visionary activist and strategist who has been called “the invisible man” of the civil rights movement. 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 1940’s, 1950’s and 1960s. Brother Outsider reveals the price that Rustin paid for his honesty, chronicling both the setbacks and triumphs of his remarkable 60-year career.
