John Lewis: Good Trouble

Film Plus Online Panel Discussion


At An Online Event


Rent the Film: $12

Celebrate an icon who spent his life getting into Good Trouble!

This month, remember the life and legacy of Representative John Lewis—Freedom Rider and Congressman, Presidential Medal of Freedom honoree and the conscience of a nation—who served the cause of social justice for decades, both as an elected representative and as a groundbreaking activist whose fervent belief in getting into “good trouble, necessary trouble” for the cause of racial equality changed our nation.

First, rent the film directly from Magnolia Pictures here, for $12. This rental allows you exclusive access to two other videos: Film of an interview Congressman Lewis gave to Oprah Winfrey shortly before his death earlier this year, as well as a one-hour panel, recorded in July, between the film’s director, Dawn Porter, and two of the other original Freedom Riders, Dr. Bernard Lafayette and Dr. Rip Patton. Your rental also includes a $5 donation to State Theatre New Jersey!

Then, watch the virtual panel that was recorded September 21 featuring director Dawn Porter; Ras J. Baraka, Mayor of Newark, NJ; Khalil Gibran Muhammad, Professor of History, Race and Public Policy at Harvard Kennedy School and Director of the Institutional Antiracism and Accountability Project; and Lonnie G. Bunch III, Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution. U.S. Senator from New Jersey, Cory Booker, provided opening remarks. Watch it here »
