On Location: MEMPHIS and the Tennessee Black Caucus of State Legislatures are proud to host the Virtual Theatrical release of John Lewis: Good Trouble. Congressman John Lewis is an Icon of the Civil Rights Movement. As chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), he was one of the "Big Six" leaders of groups who organized the 1963 March on Washington, and played many key roles in the Civil Rights Movement and its actions to end legalized racial segregation in the United States.  

As we celebrate the weekend of Independence Day, we thought it fitting to celebrate the life and legacy of Congressman John Lewis while also supporting one of the organizations that serve in the spirit of Congressman Lewis,  The National Organization of Black Elected Legislative Women (N.O.B.E.L. Women). N.O.B.E.L. Women is a non-profit, non-partisan organization primarily composed of current and former black women legislators as well as many appointed officials. This organization serve as a global voice to address a myriad of issues affecting the lives of all women.

When you purchase your Video on Demand (VOD) access for John Lewis: Good Trouble a portion of the ticket price will go to support N.O.B.E.L. Women.

JOHN LEWIS: GOOD TROUBLE, directed by acclaimed filmmaker Dawn Porter (TRAPPED, GIDEON’S ARMY), chronicles the life and career of the legendary civil rights activist and Democratic Representative from Georgia, and celebrates his 60-plus years of social activism and legislative action on civil rights, voting rights, gun control, health-care reform, and immigration. Featuring both rare archival footage and exclusive interviews with the late Congressman, Porter explores his childhood experiences, his inspiring family and his fateful meeting with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1957. In addition to her interviews with Lewis and his family, Porter’s primarily cinéma verité film also includes interviews with political leaders, Congressional colleagues, and other people who figured prominently in his life.

Immediately following the feature, there will be a pre-recorded discussion between Representative Lewis and Oprah Winfrey, filmed last month and being made available exclusively for virtual cinema and in-theater engagements of the film. This is a wide-ranging, informal, 16-minute conversation that’s a perfect follow-up to the documentary.
