Congressman John Lewis is the embodiment of heroism. In the face of dire personal consequence, he has consistently placed himself in the breech that separates the people of America from its promise, and vehemently advocates for consummation of that unfulfilled accord. The NAACP is a proud supporter of the documentary, John Lewis: Good Trouble. This film reveals the life-long journey of a crusader for freedom, justice, and equal treatment for all. We hope you are inspired to join the distinguished voice of John Lewis calling for attention, participation, and if necessary, Good Trouble. 

$5 of your rental fee will be used to support the NAACP's efforts toward progressive change.

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.
