In June of 2001, Weekend All Things Considered visited former President Jimmy Carter at his boyhood family farm in Plains, Georgia. He took us on a tour of the farm, which is being managed by the National Park Service as an historic site. It is the country's only fully preserved Depression-era farm.
The former President recalled what it was like to grow up in the 1930s, in the segregated South, working side by side with his father and black sharecroppers who lived on the property.
