Jimmy Carter on Power and God

November 1, 2016

"The fact that a person has deep religious convictions doesn't necessarily mean that that person always thinks that he's right, that God's ordained him to take a dominant position" - Jimmy Carter in May 1976, six months before he was elected President.

Originally aired on WNET's Bill Moyers Journal on PBS

We loved uncovering this interview with Jimmy Carter talking about his humble upbringings and vision for America under his watch. He talks the impact of God and religion in his path to public service, experiencing with world while in the Navy, missing the final years of his father's life, and the true meaning of helping people overcome injustice in all forms.

Follow this with our episode featuring the man who would defeat him four years later, Ronald Reagan.
