Event Time and Date

Wednesday, February 19 2014, 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM

LGBTQI Life in collaboration with the Bishop Joseph Johnson Black Cultural Center (BCC) invites you to a film showing followed by a discussion of the film Brother Outsider: The Life of Bayard Rustin.

BROTHER OUTSIDER takes a multifaceted approach to the material, reflecting the complexity of Rustin’s story. This feature-length portrait unfolds both chronologically and thematically, using interviews and traditional documentary techniques, as well as experimental approaches. The work of Marlon Riggs and the pastiche quality of his groundbreaking documentaries have inspired the production team. The historical aspects of the piece are based on meticulous primary research in the Rustin papers and other archives, and will incorporate elements such as archival footage, stills, posters and broadsheets, government propaganda films, paintings, and other cultural artifacts.
