Doug and I had a fascinating conversation about the early years of Peace Corps. It was also quite interesting to hear him talk about life in the 60's during the Civil Rights era. As a person who was born decades after the Civil Rights movement, most of what I know of that time period was what I read in books. This was really the first time I spoke to someone with first hand stories of being in the South in the 60's. Listening to Doug talk, I realize that although we have come a long way since the days of segregation and blatant discrimination, in terms of equal rights for everyone, we still have some work ahead of us.
