Sunday Supper - Oct.
and special screening of the film The Home Team

Sunday Suppers are casual gatherings where new ideas and stimulating conversation are the main fare at interesting restaurants. The guest speaker leads an informal discussion based on their work or topic of interest. Reservations are open to current Harvard Club of Georgia members and their guests on a first-come, first-served basis. Attendance is limited to 12 people so that the conversation is more personal and happens around the dinner table. Purchasing a $15.00 ticket reserves your seat at the table and contributes towards the guest speaker's meal. Each attendee orders their own meal and is responsible for his/her check.
COST: $15.00 reservation
RSVP: Open to first twelve HCG members (plus one guest)
SPEAKERS: Camille Pendley & Wayne Kendall
The Home Team follows residents of two historic, low-income neighborhoods that border Atlanta's new Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the home of the 2019 Super Bowl, as they grapple with the blatant disparity between the $1.6b stadium and the neglect of their community, where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. lived and worked decades ago. The film contextualizes these community portraits with interviews with advocates and politicians about the city's decision to support the stadium with unprecedented public investment.
