Representative John Lewis of Georgia – Freedom Rider and Congressman, Presidential Medal of Freedom honoree and the conscience of a nation – 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 us for a virtual watch of the riveting new documentary John Lewis: Good Trouble, which looks at the deep impact of Lewis’s life and work. The film celebrates his 60-plus years of activism and legislative action on civil rights, voting rights, gun control, health-care reform, and immigration, through rare archival footage and exclusive interviews with the late Congressman.

To take part in this groundbreaking event, rent the film directly from Magnolia Pictures through the BUY TICKETS button.
