I'm lazy, so I'll just post the damn info:
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 passionate belief in Gandhi's philosophy of nonviolence drew Martin Luther King Jr. and other leaders to him in the 1940's and 50's; his practice of those beliefs drew the attention of the FBI and police. But his open homosexuality forced him to remain in the background, marking him again and again as a "brother outsider." "Brother Outsider" combines rare archival footage some of it never before broadcast in the U.S. with provocative interviews to illuminate the life and work of a forgotten prophet of social change.
