Interview Summary

Ann Neelon (Senegal, 1977-1978; Education Program) talks about coming of age in Boston during the busing crisis and going to Catholic schools and college before joining the Peace Corps. She discusses knowing she needed a different experience in terms of race and became a teacher of English as a foreign language in Senegal. In her interview she describes teaching in Senegal and the impact of Peace Corps on her life, including later marrying a returned Peace Corps volunteer, Richard Parker, and introducing their two sons to the rest of the world. A poetry professor at Murray State University, Ann reads one of her poems at the end of the interview.
