brother outsiderDraws on rare archival footage, interviews, and even FBI files, to offer a powerful portrait of this forgotten political activist and Civil Rights strategist. Rustin’s nonviolent philosophy influenced Martin Luther King, but he was also a labor organizer, conscientious objector, and religious intellectual – all troublesome tags in the 20th century – and his open gay life forced him to stay in the background.
