Bayard Rustin Film Premiere
In January 2003, the Institute jointly hosted the Washington premiere of "Brother Outsider: The Life of Bayard Rustin" at the National Press Club, with the AFL-CIO, the A. Philip Randolph Institute, Freedom House, the Rustin Fund, the International Rescue Committee, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, Social Democrats, U.S.A., AFT President Sandra Feldman, and U.S. Representatives John Lewis and Eleanor Holmes Norton. A longtime friend and ally of Al Shanker's, Rustin, a gay socialist, pacifist, civil rights leader, international democracy activist, and master strategist--best remembered as the organizer of the 1963 March on Washington--is the subject of this documentary film, which was aired nationwide by PBS on January 20, Martin Luther King Day, and will be featured in the 2003 Sundance Film Festival.
