Hour B, Segment 4

Emory University president criticized for reference to Three-Fifths Compromise 

Remembering the late C. Everett Koop


Emory University president James Wagner ignited protests from students and faculty because of an essay positively referencing the Three-Fifths Compromise made at the Constitutional Convention of 1787. He updated his article with an apology, stating that “I do not consider slavery anything but heinous, repulsive, repugnant, and inhuman. I should have stated that fact clearly in my essay.”

Emory, in Atlanta, Ga., recently celebrated the opening of its Southern Christian Leadership Convention (SCLC) archive.

Erik M. Jensen is Schott–van den Eynden Professor at the Case Western Reserve University School of Law in Ohio. Read his short essay on the Constitution's original Three-Fifths Clause.

Former Surgeon General C. Everett Koop, sometimes called “America’s doctor,” was a staunch advocate for the unborn. He passed away Feb. 25 at age 96.
