WAGING PEACE: The Peace Corps Experience

a film by Allen Mondell (Sierra Leone 1963-65), a Media Projects, Inc. production

“We wanted to make a difference and change the world. And the world changed us.”
— Allen Mondell

In 1961, President John F. Kennedy asked a generation of Americans to volunteer and make a difference on a global scale. Since then, more than 200,000 volunteers have answered his call.

WAGING PEACE: The Peace Corps Experience weaves  personal letters, journals, emails and blogs written by Peace Corps Volunteers with profiles of four returned volunteers showing the enduring impact of these experiences on their own lives and the lives of others.

“I’ve recounted our stories that capture the seemingly insurmountable challenges of ordinary Americans who were willing to endure vast cultural isolation, poverty, suspicion and, at times, antagonism–all in the hopes of making a small difference.” — Allen Mondell

 

Celebrating  the power of volunteerism and cross-cultural understanding.

    • This information was posted in an earlier article, here, about Peace Corps documentaries. I believe KERA is the PBS station in Dallas, Texas. We would welcome more information on other screenings.

      “Waging Peace: The Peace Corps Experience” will air at 10 p.m. Nov. 28 on PBS affiliate KERA.
