Producer-director Bennett Singer discusses the film “Brother Outsider,” a documentary exploring the life and work of civil rights activist Bayard Rustin, who influenced Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and played a major role in organizing the 1963 March on Washington. Rustin’s role in the civil rights movement has been overlooked largely because he lived as an openly gay man. Walter Naegle, Rustin’s life partner from 1977 until Rustin's death in 1987, and who will be accepting the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Rustin's behalf, also joins the conversation. “Brother Outsider” airs on the World Channel on August 28, at 7 pm and midnight.

She's joined by Bennett Singer, writer/director/producer of the documentary “Electoral Dysfunction." The film opens at the Quad Cinema September 21.
