Documentaries & Donuts: "John Lewis: Good Trouble"

Monday, September 28, 2020

JOHN LEWIS: GOOD TROUBLE is part chronicle, part tribute to Congress member John Robert Lewis, the legendary civil rights leader-turned-politician. Director Dawn Porter's film follows Lewis' life via both archival footage and contemporary interviews. It ranges from Lewis' early years in Troy, Alabama, to his time as a college student in Nashville, where he helped found the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) and emerged as one of the "Big 6" leaders of the civil rights movement. In addition to focusing on Lewis' personal story, the film also follows the trajectory of his public service career and includes several interviews with politicians who've been inspired by him, including the late Elijah Cummings, former president Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Cory Booker, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib.
