GEORGIA SOUTHERN TO HOST FREE SCREENINGS OF ‘GOOD TROUBLE’ ON SEPT. 30 IN STATESBORO, SAVANNAH

September 19, 2020

In celebration of the life of former U.S. Rep. John Lewis, Georgia Southern University’s Office of Multicultural Affairs, Office of Leadership and Community Engagement, Sustainability Programs and University Libraries will host two free outdoor screenings of “Good Trouble,” on Sept. 30 on the Statesboro and Savannah campuses. The events will also serve as vehicles to register new voters by the Oct. 5 deadline in Georgia.

 

The film is an intimate account of Lewis’ life, legacy and more than 60 years of extraordinary activism — from the bold teenager on the front lines of the Civil Rights movement to the legislative powerhouse he was throughout his career. 

 

After Lewis petitioned Martin Luther King Jr. to help integrate a segregated school in his hometown of Troy, Alabama, King sent “the boy from Troy” a round-trip bus ticket to meet with him. From that meeting onward, Lewis became one of King’s closest allies. He organized Freedom Rides that left him bloodied or jailed and stood at the front lines in the historic Marches on Washington and Selma. He never lost the spirit of the “boy from Troy” and called on his fellow Americans to get into “good trouble” before his death in July.
