“In Their Own Words: Jimmy Carter”
The Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Georgia Public Broadcasting present a special preview screening of the PBS program “In Their Own Words: Jimmy Carter.” This is the intimate and inspiring story of a long-shot outsider who beat the odds against him again and again and never looked back in his quest to better the lives of millions. Jimmy Carter’s journey from poor, rural peanut farmer to become the 39th president of the United States will be revealed to be a story of faith, determination and humanity.
A discussion of the film will follow featuring Jason Carter, Ambassador Andrew Young and Emory University professor Andra Gillespir. GPB’s Bill Nigut will host.
Event: David Wessel, author of “Only the Rich Can Play”
Activity: Online author conversation
Economist and New York Times bestselling author David Wessel tells the incredible tale of how Washington works-and why the rich keep getting richer. In “Only the Rich Can Play” Wessel describes the creation of Opportunity Zones in which the wealthy get tax breaks for putting money into left-behind communities and those areas in desperate need of investment. Yet without oversight provisions, the money went into projects that benefited the rich and areas that didn’t need economic spurring, such as rapidly gentrifying sections of the Bay Area and a Nevada industrial park that housed a Tesla plant. Places where such opportunity zones would have worked to the benefit of poor neighborhoods, such as Baltimore and Detroit, went underfunded.
