Join audiences across the country and from over 50 performing arts centers in a nationwide watch of the riveting new documentary John Lewis: Good Trouble. After watching the film, join the live virtual panel on September 21, 2020.

Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Dawn Porter, John Lewis: Good Trouble chronicles the life and career of the legendary civil rights activist and Democratic Representative from Georgia, and celebrates his 60-plus years of social activism and legislative action on civil rights, voting rights, gun control, health-care reform and immigration. Featuring both rare archival footage and exclusive interviews with the late Congressman, Porter explores his childhood experiences, his inspiring family and his fateful meeting with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1957. In addition to her interviews with Lewis and his family, Porter’s primarily cinéma verité film also includes interviews with political leaders, Congressional colleagues and other people who figured prominently in his life.
