Directed by Samuel D. Pollard | 2017

With Al Sharpton, Andrew Young, Vernon Jordan

In 1973, Maynard Jackson became the first black politician to lead a major Southern city when he was elected mayor of Atlanta, serving three terms during which he spearheaded groundbreaking affirmative action initiatives and revitalized the the city’s cultural reputation. Through revealing archival footage and interviews with Jackson’s family, friends, and colleagues—including Bill Clinton, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and Vernon Jordan—this illuminating documentary sheds light on the life and career of a transformative figure who paved the way for future black leaders.

Q&A with Maynard Jackson III and producer Wendy Eley
