Please join Mandy Carter for a special viewing of the movie, Brother Outsider: The Life of Bayard Rustin on Wednesday, November 14, 2012 at 6:30pm in the Stahr Auditorium on Franklin and Marshall College campus. There will be a Question & Answer period following the movie.
This event is sponsored by Lancaster Theological Seminary and Office of the Chaplain at Franklin and Marshall College.
Five years in the making and the winner of more than 25 awards and honors, BROTHER OUTSIDER illuminates the life and work of Bayard Rustin, who has been described as "the unknown hero" 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 1963 March on Washington, Rustin dared to live as an openly gay man during the fiercely homophobic 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. BROTHER OUTSIDER reveals the price that Rustin paid for this honesty, chronicling both the triumphs and setbacks of his remarkable 60-year career.
