Stephens Auditorium patrons can now unlock access to John Lewis: Good Trouble directly from Magnolia Pictures and support Stephens through Wednesday, September 30. This special rental includes access to Rep. Lewis’ interview with Oprah Winfrey shortly before his death and a one-hour panel discussion, recorded in July, between the documentary’s director, Dawn Porter, and two of Rep Lewis’ fellow original Freedom Riders, Dr. Bernard Lafayette and Dr. Rip Patton.
The $12 rental fee includes a $5 donation to Stephens Auditorium. The link is good for 30 days once you purchase.
