Atlanta’s destiny is coming into focus.
The latest evidence of that was Saturday night at the Salute to Greatness dinner — the annual fundraiser for the Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Non-Violent Social Change.
It was at that dinner when Laura Turner Seydel introduced honoree Muhammad Yunus, the father of micro-credit who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2006.
“Professor Yunus is a close friend to my family. He’s like a brother to my father,” said Seydel of her father Ted Turner.
In fact, Yunus is a longtime board member of the United Nations Foundation, which was started by Turner to help improve the lives of people around the world.
