Born in Atlanta in 1915, Lester Maddox worked several jobs before opening the famous Pickrick Restaurant in 1947. Starting slowly, Pickrick became a huge success, seating over 400 people. When President Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act, Maddox closed his restaurant rather than integrate it. This is the story of the man who vowed to chase Martin Luther King, Jr. from the state, who was notorious for carrying a pickax handle, who supported George Wallace for president, and who was a lifelong thorn in the side of Jimmy Carter.
