John Lewis: Good Trouble

Event Details

  • John Lewis: Good Trouble at the Shubert Theatre

  • Celebrate an icon who spent his life getting into Good Trouble!

    This September, celebrate the life and legacy of Representative John Lewis - Freedom Rider and Congressman, Presidential Medal of Freedom honoree and the conscience of a nation. He served the cause of social justice for decades, both as an elected representative and as a groundbreaking activist whose fervent belief in getting into "good trouble, necessary trouble" for the cause of racial equality changed our nation.

    The Shubert invites you to take part in an unprecedented event uniting audiences from more than 60 nonprofit cultural organizations around the country, who are joining together to learn about Lewis' legacy through a virtual screening of the riveting new documentary John Lewis: Good Trouble, which looks at the deep impact of Lewis’ life and work.  

    Here's how you can take part in this groundbreaking social justice event:
