Conrad Taylor is a West Point and MIT graduate, whose multiple award-winning memoir, PATH to FREEDOM: My Story of Perseverance is on display at The Smithsonian's Anacostia Museum Library. The renowned Institute selected the historically-accurate, coming-of-age memoir because of its insightful perspective.Taylor grew up in a remote mining town in the upper reaches of the Amazon rainforests in Guyana, South America. His was an ordinary upbringing, until the extraordinary happened. Conrad won a coveted scholarship to the United States Military Academy in 1969. Attending the highly-regimented institution during the height of the Cold War, the Vietnam conflict, and the 60s counterculture upheavals thrust him on a life-or-death collision course with a paranoid dictatorship after West Point - because of West Point. The former Guyana Defense Force officer barely escaped its grasp.Humble roots, rude awakenings, and the life changer that is the West Point Experience inform Taylor's perspective as an author and business professional. The avid soccer fan and former youth soccer coach played for ARMY West Point in three NCAA soccer playoffs.
