President Obama’s Mandela Washington Fellows pose with former President Jimmy Carter July 16 during a visit to The Carter Center.

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.
