On May 24, 2017, I gave a talk at the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership about City on the Verge, covering a number of topics, including the urgent need for affordable housing not only for neighborhoods adjacent to the BeltLine, but everywhere in Atlanta. During the question-and-answer period, a large African-American man named Jimmy Hardy, a community organizer and lawyer who lives in the West End neighborhood, stood up and began to speak eloquently and at length. When I realized that he was going to be quotable and was making important points, I pulled my digital recorder out of my pocket and caught this on tape. “Where money is involved, it does not incorporate poor people.”
