Dr. John Newman, an expert in American politics and history, will present a lecture at Frostburg State University on Wednesday, Feb. 24, at 7 p.m. in room 397 of the Gira Center. The lecture will be followed by a question-and-answer session with Newman. This event is free and open to the public.

Dr. Newman is a former Army Intelligence officer, an expert in Far Eastern studies, a scholar of Christian theology and comparative religions, a former consultant and contributor to PBS’ “Frontline” and a historian whose research has led to revelations about America's hidden histories. He is the author of “JFK and Vietnam,” “Oswald and the CIA,” and “Quest for the Kingdom: The Secret Teachings of Jesus in the Light of Yogic Mysticism” and his most recent, “Where Angels Tread Lightly: The Assassination of President Kennedy, Volume I,” the first in a series of his scholarly examination of events that go back to World War II, the Office of Strategic Services and the early evolution of the CIA, as well as Castro’s assumption of power in Cuba in 1959. Newman teaches political science at James Madison University and previously at University of Maryland Honors College.

This event is hosted by the Department of Political Science and the Politics, Law & Society Club. For information, contact Dr. Scott Johnson at 301-687-7432 or email
