Lecture/Book Signing. Carter Center's Cecil B. Day Chapel. Free & Open to the Public.

When Mayor William Hartsfield coined the term "City too Busy to Hate" in the 1950s, who would have imagined that within fifty years Atlanta would have the world's busiest airport, rank as the eighth largest metropolitan area in the United States or, that this once racially-segregated city would host the Centennial Olympic Games and play host to the world in 1996? "Former Atlanta First Lady Valerie Jackson will be interviewing the authors for this special program, which will be recorded for later airing on WABE Radio."
