Description

This 2020 documentary chronicles the life and times of U.S. Congressperson and longtime Civil Rights activist John Lewis (1940-2020). For more than 60 years — from a teenager on the front lines of the Civil Rights movement to the legislative powerhouse in Washington — Lewis was at forefront of what he termed “good trouble.” One of MLK’s closest allies, Lewis organized courageous Freedom Rides and sit ins that left him both bloodied and jailed and was a leader in both the historic marches on Washington and Selma. An inspiring, mesmerizing saga, this film is available on multiple platforms (e.g., Amazon Prime, YouTube, Google Play, Redbox, Vudu, Apple TV, HBO Max). Open to all, but please register here to receive the Zoom link prior to the session.
