President Obama’s Mandela Washington Fellows pose with former President Jimmy Carter July 16 during a visit to The Carter Center. Carter met with the group of young African leaders and reflected upon in his organization’s work in Africa, while fielding questions from the 25 Fellows, representing 17 nations. The group is spending six weeks at Clark Atlanta University (CAU), engaged in business and entrepreneurship coursework, complemented by an integrated program of leadership training, peer collaboration, experiential learning opportunities and community activities. This summer marks the second year CAU has served as a host institution for this program of the U.S. Department of State.
