In a new clip for John Lewis: Good Trouble, we see the politician and civil rights icon speaking about the motivations of civil disobedience.

Directed by Dawn Porter, the documentary provides audiences with an in-depth look at one of the most prolific figures in the Civil Rights Movement.

In addition to interviews with political leaders, prominent members of Congress and Lewis’ family, Good Trouble will also explore Lewis’ childhood and his pivotal meeting with Martin Luther King Jr. in 1957.

Dawn Porter produced the film Good Trouble alongside Laura Michalchyshyn, Erika Alexander and Ben Arnon.
