If you were old enough to vote for President Carter, this is a must see documentary. Also, for your children & grandchildren.

President Carter has never received the recognition he deserved. Still living today, he has lived his life as a truly historical humanitarian icon. If you loved the music of the 60’s & 70’s, you will really seeing how well respected and beloved he was by musicians of those times, and his closeness with them.
