Sunday Movie Matinee

Movie picBrother Outsider:  The Life of Bayard Rustin 
Sunday, Oct. 6, 2:30 p.m. 

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.
