This Monday, you’re invited to Capitol Hill for a special screening of The Genius of Marian.
Then get ready for Black History Month in February with POV films highlighting the work of civil rights leaders and the movements they inspired. During his 60-year career as an activist, organizer and “troublemaker,” Bayard Rustin formulated many of the strategies that propelled the American civil rights movement. His work organizing the March on Washington was the crowning glory of his career, but his open homosexuality forced him to remain in the background. Celebrate his commitment to social justice and LGBT rights and watch Brother Outsider: The Life of Bayard Rustin, now streaming here, on POV. You can also share this film, along with Revolution ’67, The Barber of Birmingham, or American Revolutionary: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs, with your school, library, or local community to celebrate this important commemorative month. Register to borrow these films for free screenings through our Community Network.
For those on the West Coast, check out this screening of Of Civil Wrongs and Rights at the University of Washington:
