Brother Outsider: The Life of Bayard Rustin, Lyric Theatre
September 20, 2014 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm
On Saturday, September 20, Blue Grass Black Pride, JustFund KY, LFUCG present a showing of Brother Outsider: The Life of Bayard Rustin. It will begin at 1:30 pm at the Lyric Theatre.
“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.”
