Congressman John Lewis, Civil Rights luminary, legislator, and a man of deep faith will join faith and community leaders for a special call at 8PM ET / 5PM PT on June 18, 2020. On the call, Congressman Lewis will reflect on the fight for Civil Rights in advance of the premiere of John Lewis: Good Trouble. He will also share how people of faith can get into ‘Good Trouble’ in 2020.
Faith leaders including Progressive National Baptist Convention (PNBC) President, Rev. Dr. Timothy Stewart and Repairers of the Breach President, Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II will join Congressman Lewis in sharing messages of hope and empowerment for communities of faith.
A graduate of the American Baptist Theological Seminary, Congressman Lewis lives out the teachings of his faith each day.
