Facing the Poverty Dialectic

Former Savannah Mayor Otis Johnson kicked off the 2013 MDC lecture series on Thursday, February 21, with his lecture, "Building Equity and Opportunity in a Southern City: From paved streets to paying jobs." The mayor reflected on his 30-year career in public service and his efforts to bring together the city’s community and business leaders to close the gaps between the two Savannahs.

As part of his lecture, Mayor Johnson used a graphic to illustrate Savannah's approach to fighting poverty. Click on the .pdf below the view the graphic.
