The Deaf in the Peace Corps

Gallaudet University opens an exhibit to mark the 50th anniversary of the Peace Corps next Tuesday (Oct 25). The display will focus on the roll of deaf people in the volunteer group. There have been at least 59 deaf volunteers in the Peace Corps. 36 of them provided photos and memorabilia for the exhibit. An opening reception in the afternoon will include a “living exhibit” performance where six of the volunteers will share stories in a theatrical setting.
