The Smithsonian also recognized the Peace Corps with an exhibition spanning the organization’s world wide impact over the past fifty years during the 2011 Folklife Festival, which included crafts, food, music and dance.
Adds Williams “...this collection reflects decades of service from Americans who have worked alongside countless communities promoting world peace and friendship.”
“This is an honor for the Peace Corps to be included in such a significant American institution.”
