Black/Queer/American: Screening of "Brother Outsider" & Panel Discussion on Being A Queer and Black in the USA
Start Date: 10/28/2013Start Time: 6:00 PM
End Date: 10/28/2013End Time: 9:00 PM

Event Description:
Join the Office of Diversity for a screening of the film "Brother Outsider: The Life of Bayard Rustin." A master strategist and tireless activist, Bayard Rustin is best remembered as the organizer of the 1963 March on Washington, one of the largest nonviolent protests ever held in the United States. He brought Gandhi’s protest techniques to the American civil rights movement, and helped mold Martin Luther King, Jr. into an international symbol of peace and nonviolence.

Despite these achievements, Rustin was silenced, threatened, arrested, beaten, imprisoned and fired from important leadership positions, largely because he was an openly gay man in a fiercely homophobic era. Five years in the making and the winner of numerous awards, This film focuses on Rustin’s activism for peace, racial equality, economic justice and human rights. A panel will follow and pizza will be served
