John Lewis: Good Trouble

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


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 the Van Wezel!

Then, on Monday, September 21 at 7:00 p.m., 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.

Register for the Zoom discussion HERE. (Interactive Zoom session limited to 10,000 participants; if the panel is full, you can still watch the discussion on our Facebook Live feed.)
