The newly opened Chicago Public Library's Edgewater Branch, 6000 N. Broadway, has launched an ongoing series called "Modern Lives & Movements."

Focusing on a different topic every two months, Modern Lives & Movements is an interrelated series of film screenings, book discussions and author talks. Through July and August, the series will focus on civil-rights activist and organizer Bayard Rustin.

The events will be:

—Saturday, July 13, at 2 p.m.: There will be a screening of Brother Outsider: The Life of Bayard Rustin.

—Tuesday, Aug. 6, at 6:30 p.m.: There will be a discussion of John D'Emilio's book, Lost Prophet: The Life and Times of Bayard Rustin.

—Saturday, Aug. 17, at 2 p.m.: There will be a conversation with D'Emilio, who will discuss how Rustin's career as a social justice and peace activist speaks to the current moment. D'Emilio is a professor of gender and women's studies and history at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and author of numerous books such as Intimate Matters: A History of Sexuality in America.
