World War II: African Perspectives at Wright Museum
June 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Lecture by Richard A. Lobban, Jr., Ph.D.
Richard Lobban sets the stage of World War II Africa by discussing the political and military situation on the continent before the war, Africa’s occupation and “effective control” after the Berlin Congress, and the partition of Africa. Lobban also explains the unintended consequences of the war on African nationalism and independence after Africans acquired military experience and learned about armed struggles for independence.
