McHenry County College will host Vietnam veteran and former DePaul University professor James Brask, Ph.D., who will present "Oral History and War Memory: The Value of the Veteran Voice" from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 12, in Room B166-167 at the college, 8900 Route 14, in Crystal Lake.
The lecture, in honor of Veteran's Day, is part of MCC's Journey Home project, a series of humanities-based courses. These courses include written and oral histories and educational mentoring partnerships focused on the veteran experience, particularly the transition from soldier to civilian.
These efforts are sponsored by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
The event is free and open to the public.
