John Lewis: Good Trouble Film Night

The DAUK Film Committee and Black Caucus invite DAUK members to an exclusive screening and discussion of Dawn Porter’s widely acclaimed John Lewis: Good Trouble.

The film provides an elegantly constructed portrait of this fearless fighter against systemic racism, campaigner and Civil Rights icon, alongside an eloquent message about the vital importance of voting: “The vote is precious. It is almost sacred. It is the most powerful non-violent tool we have in a democracy.”

This evening will be a moment to reflect on his life and achievements and to draw inspiration and determination from the integrity and perseverance of the man known as the ‘the conscience of congress’, who called upon all of us to join him in getting into “… good trouble, necessary trouble, and help redeem the soul of America.”  With the soul of America currently in peril, this film couldn’t be more timely.

Join us afterwards for a separate Q and A and discussion on Zoom.

Please note: due to license restrictions, access to the film is only available to those in the UK at the time of the event. Tickets are free but donations to cover costs of the screening are appreciated.
