“We are not going back, we are going forward”

~ John Lewis

 

Riveter Community – We invite you to join us for an inspiring conversation on JOHN LEWIS: GOOD TROUBLE with Producer Erika Alexander and Riveter COO Zoë Bassey-Rowell. We will discuss this masterpiece which so powerfully chronicles the legacy of civil rights leader and United States Representative John Lewis.

This documentary is a celebration of his courageous life, his dedication to social and political activism — from the civil rights movement of the 1960s all the way through to his efforts to safeguard and preserve Americans’ ability to vote in today’s political climate.

This is a conversation you will not want to miss!

 

ERIKA ALEXANDER – Producer

Erika Alexander is beloved for the iconic acting roles of Maxine Shaw (Living Single), Detective Latoya (Get Out), Perenna (Black Lightning), Linda Diggs (Wutang: An American Saga), Barb Ballard (Run The World), and Meredith Lockhart (Swimming With Sharks). Alexander wears many hats, including actress, trailblazing activist, entrepreneur, creator, producer, and director — an all-around boss. As Co-Founder of Color Farm Media and Board Member of VoteRunLead, Alexander is on a mission to bring greater equity, inclusion, and diverse representation to both media, technology, and electoral politics.

Alexander is co-writer of the Buffy spin-off, Giles, a graphic novel collaboration with Joss Whedon and Dark Horse. Alexander previously collaborated on Dark Horse’s award-winning, ground-breaking sci-fi series, Concrete Park. She is currently co-directing a documentary film about reparations.

Born in Winslow, Arizona, Alexander grew up in Philadelphia.
