I spent an amazing couple of days in our nation's capital, Washington, DC, with civil rights icon and Operation HOPE Global Spokesman Ambassador Andrew J. Young, as we attended two screenings of "Andrew Young Presents: The Color of Money". The documentary features the work of HOPE with partner organizations First Horizon and SunTrust, and focuses on the continuation of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “Poor People’s Campaign.”





The first screening was a private one at the U.S. Office of the Comptroller with Comptroller Joseph Otting. After the screening, there was a fireside chat with myself, Ambassador Young, and Comptroller Otting.
