Name: Brother Outsider Film Screening & Discussion
Date: January 18, 2019
Time: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM EST
Event Description:
Hudson Area Library in collaboration with Out Hudson and SBK Social Justice Center is pleased to present Brother Outsider: Film Screening & Panel Discussion Thursday, January 18, 6-8pm at the library. Brother Outsider: The Life of Bayard Rustin is a documentary on the life of the activist & organizer, who was central to the Civil Rights Movement. He worked alongside Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. including on the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. Rustin often took a back seat because his open homosexuality forced him from the public eye. The panel includes Tandra LaGrone, Executive Director of In Our Own Voices, which serves the needs of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, & Transgender People of Color, our Friends and Families (http://www.inourownvoices.org/); James Powell, Arts & Creative Editor; and Khary Septh, Editor in Chief, both of The Tenth Magazine (http://thetenthmagazine.com/). The panel will lead a discussion with the audience on issues LGBTQ People of Color face, how Rustin’s bravery and openness can help develop our own self-awareness and self-expression, and how activism looks today compared with Civil Rights Movement and what it could look like in the future. This event is free and open to the public. It will take place in the community room, which is wheelchair accessible.
