Former U.S. Representative and civil rights activist John Lewis passed away this year on July 17, and although he is gone, he is not forgotten.

His legacy continues to live on. Lewis has invested over 60 years of his life to fearlessly fight for racial equality and the effects of his efforts still help the black community today.

John Lewis: Good Trouble will recount Lewis’ life story, all the way from him from being patronized on the Freedom Ride as a young man to becoming an elected official honored with the Presidential Medal of Freedom. It’s the troubles he had to face for the greater good of the Black community, and for America as a whole.

In celebration of Lewis’ life, Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts is allowing the viewing of a documentary titled John Lewis: Good Trouble that includes a live Zoom discussion panel from now until September 30th for just $12.

Five of those dollars will be donated to Dr. Phillips Center, so they continue to enrich and impact the lives of others through the arts. Check out the details on their website.

Please follow CDC guidelines and Orange County advisories to stay safe, and please support this free publication. Our small but mighty team is working tirelessly to bring you news on how coronavirus is affecting Central Florida. Please consider making a one-time or monthly donation. Every little bit helps.
