Jimmy Carter Annual Town Hall Meeting with Emory Freshmen
September 17, 2009
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.”
Jimmy Carter waves to a freshmen questioner. Students were asked to stand if their question was read to the former president.
