AARP Georgia in collaboration with In the Life Atlanta is screening the film, Brother Outsider illuminating 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 1963 March on Washington, Rustin dared to live as an openly gay man during the fiercely homophobic 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s.
August 29, 2014, 3:00pm – 5:00pm
Georgian Terrace Hotel, 659 Peachtree St, NE, Atlanta, Meeting Room 6
The free event is a part of Atlanta Black Gay Pride 2014 weekend. This film is presented to address the intersection of issues facing Georgia’s aging, LGBT, and African American/Black community. A panel discussion consisting of local LGBT advocates will follow the film to examine these intersections and how AARP can empower and provide resources to support diverse communities.
