Brother Outsider Tonight at A/perture

I normally don’t mention Winston-Salem, but that may have to change. A/perture in W-S is screening the PBS film Brother Outsider tonight at 8:15 pm, co-sponsored by PFLAG.

This Sundance Grand Jury Prize nominee chronicles the life of civil rights activist Bayard Rustin, who, among many contributions to the cause, is best known for organizing the 1963 March on Washington, D.C., involving hundreds of thousands of people. But Rustin’s skin color wasn’t the only thing that reinforced the feeling that he was an outsider in America. He was also openly gay at a time when most gay men — particularly black men — remained in the closet.

If you don’t want to drive to Winston-Salem for this, you can wait til it’s screened in Greensboro February 27 at UNCG.
