History Dept. Hosts Professor French
The West Point Department of History was thrilled to host Professor John French for a guest lecture on the impacts of Africans to Brazilian history. Professor French is the author of numerous publications and is a Professor of History as well as African and African-American Studies at Duke University. Cadets enrolled in the African and Latin America stems of the Regional Studies in World History course were particularly excited to explore the interconnected histories of the regions which they study. During his visit to the Academy, Professor French also had an opportunity to visit many of our own historic sites, including the Great Chain, Battle Monument, and Cullum Hall which honors our fallen graduates.
