  • Exhibit: The Colors of Peace - President Carter’s Vision through the Art of Children

    Exhibit October 1, 2022-January 31, 2023

    Ongoing: October 1, 2022 - January 31, 2023

    Bringing together 270+ artworks created by children from around the world, the exhibition is a celebration of the work of International Paint Pals and its peace-driven mission. Founded in 1995 as part of the Carter Center’s Atlanta Project, International Paint Pals started as a community arts initiative in south Atlanta. Since then, the organization has grown to work with over 200,000 children in more than 125 countries. Combining a simple pledge – “for the rest of my life, I promise to do everything I can to bring peace into our world” – and the creativity and imagination of children of all ages, the organization and the work it supports is a grassroots realization of one of former President Jimmy Carter’s initiatives, waging peace. This exhibition is also a call to action for visitors to be inspired by the artworks and to create and share their own.

  • American Sirens: The Incredible Story of the Black Men Who Became America’s First Paramedics by Kevin Hazzard

    September 1, 2022-September 30, 2022

    American Sirens: The Incredible Story of the Black Men Who Became America's First Paramedics by Kevin Hazzard

    Wednesday, September 21, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    Location: Carter Museum Theater

    Activity: Author lecture/book signing

     

    In American Sirens, acclaimed journalist and paramedic Kevin Hazzard tells the extraordinary story of an unjustly forgotten group of Black men in Pittsburgh who became the first paramedics in America, saving lives and changing the course of emergency medicine around the world. It is the story of how a group of young, undereducated Black men forged a new frontier of healthcare. They battled racism—from the community, the police, and the government. Their job was grueling, the rules made up as they went along, their mandate nearly impossible—and yet despite the long odds and fierce opposition, they succeeded spectacularly. Free and open to the public, in partnership with ACappella Books.

  • Tell It True by John Pruitt

    Author Programs October 1, 2022-October 31, 2022

    Tell It True by John Pruitt
    Monday, October 10, 2022 at 7:00 pm
    Carter Museum Theater

    Tell It True is veteran journalist John Pruitt's historical novel  based on his experiences over fifty years as a television news reporter and anchor in Atlanta, Georgia. 

    An African American serviceman is gunned down on a rural Georgia road in July 1964. This shocking murder ensnares a wide range of characters including the journalists who cover it, the lawmen who must solve it, the civil rights leaders who capitalize upon it, the politicians who exploit it, and the Atlanta magnate who fears its impact on the New South image he desperately wants to protect. TV news cameraman Gil Matthews and AP reporter Mindy Williams team up to follow the twists and turns of the murder investigation as rural, state, and federal lawmen clash, a civil rights leader fends off a black power challenger, and voters take sides in a governor's race pitting virulent racist Roscoe Pike against moderate underdog Harrison Parker.  

    "There were many momentous stories I covered during my career," says Pruitt, "but none equaled the magnitude of the struggles for racial equality in the South."

    Afternoons with Harper Lee
    Thursday, Oct 20, 2022 at 7:00 pm
    Carter Museum Theater

    Imagine sitting with an esteemed writer on his or her front porch somewhere in the world and swapping life stories. Dr. Wayne Flynt got the opportunity to do just that with Nelle Harper Lee. In a friendship that blossomed over a dozen years starting when Lee relocated back to Alabama after having a stroke, Flynt and his wife Dartie became regular visitors at the assisted living facility that was Lee’s new home. And there the conversation began. It began where it always begins with Southern storytellers, with an invitation to “Come in, sit down, and stay a while."
    The hours spent visiting, in intimate closeness, are still cherished by Wayne Flynt. They yielded revelations large and small, which have been shaped into Afternoons with Harper Lee. Part memoir, part biography, this book offers a unique window into the life and mind and preoccupations of one of America’s best-loved writers.

    Free and Open to the Public.
