John Lewis has served as U.S. Representative for Georgia's 5th Congressional District since 1987, and is known for his passionate work both in the civil rights movements and on Capitol Hill. A new documentary called John Lewis: Good Trouble goes beyond the highlight reel of his storied life and reveals more personal elements of the man and the figure. On Second Thought hears from the film’s director and producer Dawn Porter and producer Erika Alexander about how the film connects his legacy of seeking justice from his youth to his role as a revered congressman today.

"On Second Thought" for Friday, July 10, 2020.

Growing up, Mahalia Latortue says she had three career options: doctor, lawyer, or engineer. She started her undergraduate studies at Oakwood University in Alabama focused on pre-law, but graduated with a passion for filmmaking. Now, she's a recent graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design, and founded her own Atlanta-based production company called Anacaona Pictures. Latortue joined On Second Thought to talk about how her company aims to "create diverse, untold stories and provide a voice to the voiceless."
