Panel Discusses African Americans In The Time of War

Earlier this week, College of DuPage hosted a panel discussion as part of its annual Black History Month celebration. The event brought together a student veteran, two faculty members who served, a veteran who served as president of the COD Foundation, and the first African American woman to reach the rank of Major General in the United States Army. First Light host Brian O'Keefe had a chance to talk with Major General, retired Marcia Anderson
