“BROTHER OUTSIDER:THE LIFE OF BAYARD RUSTIN” on LOGO

Rustin dvd coverBROTHER OUTSIDER: THE LIFE OF BAYARD RUSTIN will be cablecast on Season Five of the “Real Momentum” documentary series on Logo with two screenings coming up in February on Saturday Feb 16 at 7pm and Sunday February 17 at 2pm.  BROTHER OUTSIDER illuminates the life and work of Bayard Rustin, the “unknown hero” of the civil rights movement. A mentor to Martin Luther King Jr. and the architect of the legendary 1963 March on Washington, Rustin dared to live as an openly gay man during the 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.

Following its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, BROTHER OUTSIDER went on to garner more than 25 awards and honors, including eight Best Documentary awards, seven Audience Favorite awards, and the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Documentary. The film has been described as “powerful and startling” (The Advocate), “rich in humanity” (africana.com), “beautifully crafted” (Boston Globe) and “a potent and persuasive piece of historical rediscovery” (Los Angeles Times).

We are also delighted that, for the first time, BROTHER OUTSIDER is now available on home video. To purchase a DVD or to learn more about Rustin, please visit the website at www.rustin.org  .
