Toledo Public Schools is excited to announce its next local history lecture.

Toledo's War: How The Glass City Shaped - And Was Shaped By - The Second World War, will be presented by TPS History teacher Joe Boyle this Thursday, March 3, at 7 p.m. at Waite High School, 301 Morrison St. Those unable to attend the lecture in person can watch it on YouTube: https://youtu.be/sUDlDHd_CCg

In nearly every major battle of World War II - both foreign and domestic - Toledoans were there. From Shanghai to Gleiwitz, Pearl Harbor to Tokyo Bay, and in the battles at home over the changing role of women and race relations in a diversifying place, Toledo's story in the 1930s and 1940s tells a larger story about America at a turning point in history.

Mr. Boyle's Toledo's War, coming this summer from the University of Toledo Press, tells the stories of how Toledoans shaped the course of the Second World War, and how the war changed them - and their hometown. 

All  lectures are free and open to the public with plenty of parking at Waite High School. Masks are required.
