70 Over 70: Giving Peace a Chance
Profile of Tim Wilson, Seeds of Peace camp director. Wilson first experienced sleepaway camp in the late 1940s when he attended one of the few camps that existed for Black children. When he moved to Maine, he connected with other members of Maine's small Black community and also began to work in government service. In 1993, Joel Bloom founded Seads of Peace and he asked Wilson to run it. The camp was a place for kids from both sides of the Israeli-Arab divide to come and experience an atmosphere of tolerance. At 80, Wilson is still a senior advisor to the program and is director of the Maine program at Seeds of Peace.
