We’re all familiar with the 1963 March on Washington, DC when Dr. King delivered his famous “I Have a Dream” speech. Have you ever wondered how this massive, national demonstration was organized and orchestrated? Without texting? Without any type of cell phone? Without even pagers? Meet the person behind the scenes, Bayard Rustin, a Black Quaker and African American gay man. Learn about the passionate, principled mind that was a counselor to Dr. King and other civil rights leaders. Learn why his name is still not well known. Join us at Meaningful Movies in Ridgefield for our free Black History Month showing of “Brother Outsider.”
