Description
Program 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. This documentary 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. The program uses footage from various news reports and contemporary interviews to portray the often conflicting interests of the people wanting to see positive community development that could occur as a result of the Olympic Games being held in Atlanta. The program covers the history of Atlanta leading up to hosting the Olympics, development and construction plans, support for and opposition to the Olympic Games in Atlanta, issues surrounding Centennial Olympic Park, and neighborhood development.
