5:30 PM EDT - 8:00 PM EDT
Join the Heinz History Center’s African American Program for a free, online screening of “Brother Outsider” on August 17, as part of the 2022 From Slavery to Freedom Film Series.
The film tells the story of Bayard Rustin, a visionary strategist and activist who has been called “the unknown hero” of the Civil Rights movement. A disciple of Gandhi, a 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.
David Garrow, noted historian and author of numerous books, essays, chapters, and articles about the Civil Rights movement, will discuss the film following the screening. His book, “Bearing the Cross: Martin Luther King, Jr., and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference,” won the 1987 Pulitzer Prize in Biography and the seventh annual Robert F. Kennedy Book Award.
