This Sundance Grand Jury Prize nominee chronicles the life of civil rights activist Bayard Rustin, who, among many contributions to the cause, is best known for organizing the 1963 March on Washington, D.C., involving hundreds of thousands of people. But Rustin’s skin color wasn’t the only thing that reinforced the feeling that he was an outsider in America. He was also openly gay at a time when most gay men — particularly black men — remained in the closet.
Vigilante or Guardian? Terrorist or Hero? Savior or Brainwashed Nut? Whatever you think about these four Americans who have dedicated themselves twenty-four-seven to a cause, the one thing you won’t call them is uncommitted.
