Gregory Walker talked about his research into the Greek mythology of the Trojan War. The Ethiopus, one of the missing books from the Trojan epic cycle that includes Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey, includes the story of the hero Memnon, king of the Ethiopians, who came with an expeditionary force to help Troy against the Achaean invaders. Gregory Walker is the author of Shades of Memnon: The African Hero of the Trojan War and the Keys to Ancient World Civilization (Seker Nefer Press; January 1, 1999), the first book of a mythological fantasy series based on this epic. Mr. Walker responded to questions from members of the audience.
