ULM French professor joins advisory board for African American Heritage Museum

Dr. Fredrick Adams (B.A. ’75), associate professor of French at the University of Louisiana at Monroe, has been selected to be a member of the Advisory Board for the Louisiana Delta African American Heritage Museum in Monroe.

The board is charged with exploring ideas publicizing exhibits and increasing funds for the exhibits.

The museum opened its doors to the public on March 12, 1994 and is now located in a new building on Chennault Park Drive in Monroe.  The museum aims to preserve, promote, and provide projects that enhance aesthetic art, cultural awareness, and the heritage of African Americans. It includes history from surrounding parishes and weaves an informative narrative of both the struggles and contributions of blacks in a 15 parish region of Northeast Louisiana and the United States.

Adams is a graduate of ULM and has been on the World Languages faculty since the spring of 1979.  He teaches all levels of French but is also proficient in Spanish, Russian, German, and Italian.
