Film Synopsis

For three generations, the Lewis family has been pushing for racial equity in the Midwest. Through an emphasis on sharing family history and the importance of local leadership, each generation of the Lewis family has been raised to contribute to their communities in their own way, even knowing they might not see the results of that labor in their own lifetime. Now, as Rachel Lewis runs for City Council, a new generation of Lewises is being exposed to the family’s long line of community organizing. Lifetimes is a meditation on the practical and emotional labor of fighting for racial equity long-term through a portrait of one family in Lansing, MI.
