GAAMC Weekly Meeting: Rustin in Morristown at Unitarian Fellowship in Morristown

Every Monday – 6:00PM to 9:00PM

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, they will be sharing a new film about Bayard Rustin, the architect behind the 1963 March on Washington, one of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s most iconic moments.

The architect of 1963’s momentous March on Washington, Bayard Rustin, was one of the greatest activists and organizers the world has ever known. He challenged authority and never apologized for who he was, what he believed, or who he desired. And he did not back down. He made history, and in turn, he was forgotten. Directed by DGA award and five-time Tony Award winner George C. Wolfe and starring Emmy award winner Colman Domingo, Rustin shines a long overdue spotlight on the extraordinary man who, alongside giants like the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr., Adam Clayton Powell Jr., and Ella Baker, dared to imagine a different world, and inspired a movement in a march toward freedom.
