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.
Join audiences from across the country for a nationwide watch of the riveting new documentary John Lewis: Good Trouble followed by a live virtual panel on Monday, September 21, at 7 pm featuring the film’s director and civil rights advocates as they talk about Representative Lewis’s legacy of fearless protest and how we can keep his campaign for justice alive.
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. $5 of your rental fee goes to the Kravis Center.
Then, on Monday, September 21, at 7 pm, join us for a live virtual panel with 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. US Senator from New Jersey, Cory Booker, will provide opening remarks.
Register for the Zoom discussion. (Interactive Zoom session limited to 10,000 participants; if the panel is full, you can still watch the discussion on the New Jersey Performing Arts Center Facebook Live feed.)
