Church on Main will host a screening of the movie Rustin on Thursday January 11th, 2024 at 7:00 PM.  Please email for the exact location.

The film tells the story of the charismatic civil rights activist Bayard Rustin.  Despite incredible odds, he managed to organize the March on Washington in 1963. This event is considered one of the high points of the civil rights movement in the United States.

Rustin was a gay man and, due to criticism over his sexuality, he usually acted as an influential adviser behind the scenes to civil-rights leaders. In the 1980s, he became a public advocate on behalf of gay causes, speaking at events as an activist and supporter of human rights.

Church on Main is an LGBTQ+ affirming, justice-minded, Christ-centered worshipping community based in Middletown, Delaware and affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (USA)
