Watch ‘Counter’ – A Short Film About a One-Person Sit-in by a 30-Year-Old Bayard Rustin

Watch 'Counter' - A Short Film About a One-Person Sit-in by a 30-Year-Old Bayard Rustin

While checking out the films included in PBS’ 2015 Online Film Festival lineup, I came across this one, titled "Counter," from director Nicholas Bouier, and screenwriter Terah Jackson.

"Counter," a Project Involve short film, centers on Martin Luther King Jr.’s strategic advisor, Bayard Rustin, when he was a few years younger, conducting a solo sit-in at a diner in 1942 Indianapolis.

The 11-minute short film, a Project Involve selection, is embedded below.
