Montgomery College’s History and Political Science Department will host two book lectures, at 7 p.m. on April 7 and April 14, in the Rockville Campus Technical Center, Room 136. The events are free and open to the public.

David O. Stewart will speak on April 7 at 7 p.m. He is an award-winning writer and the president of the Washington Independent Review of Books. Stewart is the author of several acclaimed histories, including The Summer of 1787: The Men Who Invented the Constitution as well as Impeached: The Trial of President Andrew Johnson and the Fight for Lincoln’s Legacy, and American Emperor: Aaron Burr’s Challenge to Jefferson’s America. He is also the author of a historical novel The Lincoln Deception. In his latest book, Madison’s Gift: Five Partnerships That Built America, Stewart discusses James Madison and suggests, although often overshadowed, he was the most significant framer of the new nation.

Dr. Vincent J. Intondi will speak on April 14 at 7 p.m. Dr. Intondi is associate professor of African American History at Montgomery College and director of research at the Nuclear Studies Institute of the American University in Washington, DC. In African Americans Against the Bomb, Intondi tells the compelling story of black activists who fought for nuclear disarmament by connecting the nuclear issue with the fight for racial equality.
