2020 Constitution Day Lecture Scheduled at Montana Tech


Montana Tech’s Office of Student Affairs has scheduled the annual Constitution Day Lecture for September 17, 2020, from 6:00 – 8:00 pm in Room 128 of the Natural Resources Building. Dr. John M. Garic will offer this year’s Constitution Day Lecture.

Constitution Day commemorated the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution by thirty-nine men 233 years ago on September 17, 1787. Dr. Garic’s lecture is titled “The 1787 Constitutional ‘Approval’ of Slavery and its Ongoing Legacy in Today’s ‘Black Lives Matter’ Era.”

“This is an election year,” said Dr. Carrie Vath, Tech’s Dean of Students. “As such, it is vitally important for our students and, in fact, for all of us, to understand our Constitution and its context in our lives. I urge all students to attend this important lecture.”

The event is free and open to the public.
