This is a grassroots movement by the people and for the people, calling themselves “The Carter Posses” (coined by legacy activist Peter Coyote), a movement with events building for three years. The first weeklong jamboree in Carter’s name began on the final day of the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love Festivities, October 1, 2017.
And why is Carter the Rock’n Roll President? Just ask Bob Dylan who refused a Musicares Award for two years until Carter agreed to present it! Carter said “musicians have more power than any head of state. And it’s great to see people taking care of their own.”
