In 1961, President John F. Kennedy signed the executive order creating the Peace Corps, a radical idea of global citizenship that has stood the test of time over its history. In 2021, this icon of American idealism, peace and friendship marked its 60th anniversary.
We'll discuss the documentary A Towering Task: the Story of the Peace Corps which looks at the past, present and future of the organization. We'll also address what it means to be a global citizen in today's world.
