Monday, February 21 at 9:30 p.m. – Jimmy Carter: American Experience

(Rochester, NY) Jimmy Carter's story is one of the greatest dramas in American politics. In 1980, he was overwhelmingly voted out of office in a humiliating defeat. Over the subsequent two decades, he became one of the most admired statesmen and humanitarians in America and the world. Jimmy Carter: American Experience, airing Monday, February 21 at 9:30 p.m. on WXXI-TV/HD (DT21.1/cable 1011 and 11), traces the ascent of the ambitious farm boy from Georgia to the White House; the nature of Carter's political leadership in the context of the turbulent 1970s; the internal conflicts with his own Christian religion; the role of his confidant and advisor, wife Roslynn, and his eventual emergence as a world politician.
