The second event in our 2019 Atkinson Speaker Series features journalist Gene Beley who will give us the back story of how he and photographer Dan Poush got invited to fly with Johnny Cash and June Carter from Los Angeles to Sacramento for a weekend concert at Folsom Prison, Jan. 13, 1968.  That one-day smash hit concert that redeemed Cash from his bad boy days to the top of the music world led to much more for Beley and Poush, too.
