On today's episode, I talked with Oscar Nominated, and Emmy Winning Director, Sam Pollard!
Sam's new documentary, "Maynard" tells the story of Maynard Jackson, the first African-American Mayor elected in Atlanta. I absolutely loved this filmed and was fascinated to learn the story of a political hero and icon, whose story I had never heard.
On this episode I talked with Sam about how he first heard Maynard's story, how he chooses his documentary topics, Maynard Jackson's influence in modern politics, how Maynard changed the political game, what he would hope current politicians would learn from Maynard, and more.
