”Maynard” Movie Screening

Bring your lawn chair and some snacks and join us in celebrating the life of Maynard Jackson, Jr. with a showing of the documentary “Maynard” in the Cascade Springs Nature Preserve.
In 1968 after the assassinations of Dr. Rev. Martian Luther King, Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy, Maynard Jackson, Jr. announced his candidacy for the Georgia U.S. Senate against known segregationist, Herman Talmadge.
His loss ultimately reignited a movement in the south that was started by Dr. King and picked up by Maynard.
The “enforcer” of affirmative action and voter turnout, Maynard crafted successful diversity, inclusion, & engagement templates that are still practiced today while transforming the reputation of Atlanta from the “heart of the confederate south” to a cosmopolitan world-class city.
