The interactive online panel discussion about Lewis's history and impact on the social justice struggles of today. Panelists include director Dawn Porter, Ras J. Baraka, Mayor of Newark, NJ, Khalil Gibran Muhammad, Professor of History, Race and Public Policy at Harvard Kennedy School and Director of the Institutional Antiracism and Accountability Project, and Lonnie G. Bunch III, Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution -- who worked extensively with Lewis to establish the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture. US Senator from New Jersey, Cory Booker, will provide opening remarks.

Representative John Lewis of Georgia -- Freedom Rider and Congressman, Presidential Medal of Freedom honoree and conscience of the nation -- 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 country.

This event is part of NJPAC's ongoing PSEG True Diversity Film Series -- and the latest offering in the Arts Center's extensive programming around issues of social justice and racial equity.

"Conversations about justice, equality and access have always been an integral part of NJPAC's role as an anchor cultural institution. As America's most diverse performing arts center in terms of programming, staff and audiences, these values are embedded in the Arts Center's DNA," says John Schreiber, NJPAC's President and CEO.
