This is the twenty-second in a series of images, PHIL 16989 through 17013, depicting a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Public Health Library and Information Center (PHLIC) exhibit entitled, Bringing the World Home: CDC’s Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) Celebrate Peace Corps Week 02/23/14 – 03/01/14. Contained in this case, was a pair of size-39 shoes, crafted in Meckhe, a small commune in the country of Senegal, by a local leather worker. Their laces tie high up on the wearer’s legs. These shoes were set atop a woman’s garment known as a boubou, which was made in the Senegal city of Thiès, and is a locally worn dress. The items were donated by RPCV, Lisa Angel, which she had acquired during her Peace Corps Volunteer tour through Senegal from 2006–2008.
