Free Film Screening: Brother Outsider

This event is a part of the March on Washington Film Festival. Tickets to the screening are FREE. However, you MUST RSVP via EVENTBRITE.

http://www.eventbrite.com/event/7264360899/es2/?rank=5

Nicole Austin-Hillery of the Brennan Center for Justice hosts the screening and discussion panel to follow. Discussion panel details coming soon. Long before Martin Luther King, Jr. became a national figure, Bayard Rustin routinely put his body — and his life — on the line as a crusader for racial justice. Rustin's commitment to pacifism and his visionary advocacy of Gandhian nonviolence made him a pioneer in the 1940s, and captured King's imagination in the 1950s. In 1963, with more than 20 years of organizing experience behind him, Rustin brought his unique skills to the crowning glory of his civil rights career: his work organizing the historic March on Washington, the biggest protest America had ever witnessed.

    I thought this film was very well done. It shed light on a figure who existed on the periphery of some of the most important moments in our nation's history. I learned quite a bit and I plan to screen the film for my son and nephews. The film will be airing on PBS August 11th.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
