Film: Get in the Way: The Journey of John Lewis

The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, 1001 Bissonnet
Houston, 77005-1803

In 1965, the historic Selma March known as Bloody Sunday was a turning point in the Civil Rights Movement. John Lewis—now a U.S. Congressman, then a young student—co-led hundreds of peaceful marchers seeking voting rights for African Americans in the South. When they came face to face with a wall of Alabama state troopers, Lewis took a steadfast, nonviolent stand and encouraged his followers to do the same. Seventy-six-year-old Lewis is a respected legislator and elder statesman who continues to practice nonviolence in his determined fight for justice. The film is a riveting portrayal of Lewis’s personal journey of courage, searing disappointments, and hard-won triumphs. Over the decades—including on the House floor this past June—he inspires others to “get in the way.”
