Brother Outsider: The Life of Bayard Rustin

Loading...
"[Bayard Rustin] was one of the first 'freedom riders,' an advisor to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and A. Philip Randolph, organizer of the 1963 March on Washington. Intelligent, gregarious and charismatic, Rustin was denied his place in the limelight for one reason -- he was gay. His homosexuality forced him to play a background role in landmark events in the Black struggle. This...documentary [deals] with the interplay of personal and political in the life of a complex, multi-talented essential figure in the history of American radicalism." -- Container.

Interview With Bayard Rustin, 1982 [electronic resource]

Loading...
Bayard Rustin was a civil rights activist, and the main organizer of the 1963 March on Washington. He offers his interpretation of the historical meanings of the March on Washington and the Civil Rights Act of 1965. He comments on the link between the civil rights and anti-war movements, and elucidates the debates within those movements over whether or not they should be linked. Mr. Rustin discusses the attempted marginalization of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by various civil rights groups opposed to his anti-war stance on political grounds, and the role of the media on the radicalization of the civil rights movement.
