Celebrating Black History Month

In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King and Coretta Scott King, the Harvard Film Archive and the Harvard Library Office for Antiracism are collaborating to screen and discuss two films vital to the Black American story: the documentary Brother Outsider: The Life of Bayard Rustin about a civil rights pioneer left out of history because of his choice to live as a gay man in an intolerant time, and an independent feature from the 80s, Losing Ground by Kathleen Collins. The star of this singular film, Seret Scott, will not only be in conversation after the screening, but she will hold a special talk earlier in the day regarding her experiences on stage in the era of civil rights.
