Jimmy Carter Annual Town Hall Meeting with Emory Freshmen 

Former president Jimmy Carter visited Emory September 16, for his 28th annual Carter Town Hall meeting for Emory University's 1,300 freshmen. The freshman are required to attend the yearly ritual, in which Carter responds to seemingly random questions written by the students. This year's meeting took place against a backdrop of Carter's comment the previous day, quoted by Fox News, that Congressman Joe Wilson’s outburst during President Obama’s recent speech to Congress was “based on racism.”
