"A Towering Task: The Story of the Peace Corps" is a new documentary film that brings the story of this organization from its establishment by President Kennedy in 1961 to the present day. With government agency budgets under fire, increased nationalistic tendencies in America, and Peace Corps Volunteers at the forefront of some of the most pressing themes facing the global community, "A Towering Task" asks: What role should the Peace Corps play in the 21st century?
The film showing (1 hour 47 minutes) will be followed by a discussion and question-and-answer session with Returned Peace Corps Volunteers from the Lehigh Valley. Refreshments will be provided. This event is being co-sponsored by the Center for Community Engagement, the Comparative and International Education Program, the Environmental Initiative, the Global Studies Program, the Department of International Relations, and the Department of Sociology & Anthropology.
