Bayard Rustin.

Below a trailer for the biopic “Brother Outsider: The Life of Bayard Rustin.” Five years in the making and the winner of more than 20 awards, “Brother Outsider” illuminates the life and work of Bayard Rustin, a visionary activist and strategist who has been called “the unknown hero” of the civil rights movement. A tireless crusader for justice, a disciple of Gandhi, a mentor to Martin Luther King Jr., and the architect of the legendary March on Washington, Rustin dared to live as an openly gay man during the fiercely homophobic 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. “Brother Outsider” reveals the price that Rustin paid for this openness, chronicling both the triumphs and setbacks of his remarkable 60-year career.
