Description
"... an independent documentary probing expectations that Atlanta would use the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games for widespread urban renewal, especially for the revitalization of poor, inner-city neighborhoods."--excerpt from 1996 Peabody Awards entry form. Focuses on three communities which were damaged by highway construction and federal Urban Renewal programs following World War II. In the 1980s, residents were promised the Olympics would support economic and residential redevelopment. Uses footage from various news reports and contemporary interviews to portray the often conflicting interests of the people wanting to see positive community development which could occur as a result of the Olympic Games being held in Atlanta.
