Join audiences from arts and cultural organizations across the country for a virtual discussion on the life and work of Congressman John Lewis, produced by New Jersey Performing Arts Center. First, watch the film John Lewis: Good Trouble. Then, September 21 at 7 p.m., stream the live panel featuring Lonnie Bunch, Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, and Khalil Gibran Muhammad, Professor of Professor of History, Race and Public Policy at Harvard Kennedy School and Director of the Institutional Antiracism and Accountability Project, as well as other leaders in politics and civil rights. Rent the film here, and register for the free panel here.
Included in the $12 rental are two additional recorded conversations to stream as well as a donation to the Princeton University Art Museum, justifying the higher cost of streaming through Magnolia than other sites. After viewers stream the film, they have exclusive access to:
1) A 15-minute interview between Congressman John Lewis and Oprah Winfrey. This wide ranging conversation was one of the last interviews Congressman Lewis held in his lifetime.
2) A one-hour panel, recorded in July, between the film’s director, Dawn Porter, and two of the original Freedom Riders, Dr. Bernard Lafayette and Dr. Rip Patton.
