The city of Atlanta is 67% black and one of the poorest, most crime-ridden, least educated, worst-housed municipalities in the U.S. - not a likely site for the 1996 Olympic Games. This Fortune magazine article looks at how two natives of Atlanta, a civil rights hero and a real estate lawyer, traveled the globe selling Atlanta as a Third World city in order to win the votes of Third World Olympic delegates and bring the Games to Atlanta. (July 22, 1996)
