  • “Countdown to Zero: Defeating Disease”

    Exhibit January 11, 2017-December 16, 2017
    zero_exhibit1

    Only one human disease, smallpox, has ever been eradicated. But soon a second infection will join the list: Guinea worm disease, a painful and debilitating condition caused by the Guinea worm—known to many as the “fiery serpent”. There is no medicine to cure Guinea worm disease and no vaccine to prevent it. Yet it can be stopped. This exhibition shows the heroic efforts throughout history to eradicate, eliminate, and control disease, including the Carter Center-led campaign to wipe out Guinea worm.

    A page-turner in the most exquisite sense, this book of over 160 portraits expresses the emotive beauty and grace of the human face. Documentary photographer Alison Wright traveled to every continent to capture the diversity of the human tribe, from toddlers to those who’ve lived a lifetime, and from South America to Africa, Asia, and points in between. Some of the people photographed are privileged, some live ordinary lives, and others live close to the land and in communities that may not last another generation.

    Lecture/Booksigning

    Carter Presidential Library & Museum Theater

    Free and Open to the Public

    This is a story about an accidental activist. “A True Story of High Finance, Murder, and One Man’s Fight for Justice”. He started out his adult life as the Wall Street maverick whose instincts led him to Russia just after the breakup of the Soviet Union, where he made his fortune. Along the way he exposed corruption, and when he did, he barely escaped with his life. His Russian lawyer wasn’t so lucky: he ended up in jail, where he was tortured to death. That changed Browder forever.

From never-before-seen photos to candid conversations with former vice-presidents, family members, political power players of their time, and others - Charles Denyer brings to life untold stories and memorable moments of the three-story, green-shuttered mansion covered in layers of off-white paint, and the people who were privileged to call it home.
