This award-winning documentary chronicles the life of Bayard Rustin, an adviser to Martin Luther King, Jr. and a tireless activist who was the chief organizer of the 1963 March on Washington, one of the largest nonviolent protests in U.S. history. Despite his achievements, Rustin's work has been widely forgotten by history, largely because he was silenced, threatened, arrested, beaten, imprisoned and fired from important leadership positions for being openly gay in the 1960s. The film chronicles Rustin's activism for peace, racial equality, economic justice and human rights. It has been screened at The United Nations and for members of Congress, as well as at schools, community forums, labor gatherings, and film festivals.
