The Black Law Students Association and Lambda Law Society are pleased to present a film screening of the award-winning documentary, Brother Outsider, sponsored by Shipman & Goodwin LLP.  This eye-opening documentary celebrates the life of Bayard Rustin, a visionary activist, strategist and an unsung hero of the civil rights movement.  Rustin's advocacy of pacifism and nonviolence made him a pioneer in the 1940s and, a decade later, an inspiration to Martin Luther King, Jr.  Unfortunately, he was pushed to the margins of the movement because he was openly gay and refused to oppose the Vietnam War.

Panel discussion and reception immediately following the screening in the William F. Starr Hall Reading Room.

Panelists: 
  • Walter Naegle, Widower of Bayard Rustin
  • Bennett Singer, Producer/Director of "Brother Outsider"
  • Anne Stanback, founding Executive Director of Love Makes A Family
  • Noel A. Cazenave, Professor, University of Connecticut
