President Ken Gormley's 'Nixon, Ford and the Constitution' Lecture to Premiere on C-SPAN 3

A pre-recorded session of President Ken Gormley's undergraduate-level class "American Presidents and the Constitution" will premiere on C-SPAN 3.

Gormley's class--which is co-taught with Duquesne's Pre-Law Center Director Dr. Kristen Coopie--will premiere on C-SPAN 3 on Saturday, May 23 at 8 p.m. ET and again at midnight. It will also be rebroadcasted at 6 a.m. ET on Sunday, May 24.

During the class, Gormley focuses on the Watergate investigation and questions of control over former President Richard Nixon's secretly recorded White House tapes. He also discusses former President Gerald Ford's pardon of Nixon following the 37th president's resignation in Aug.1974.

The segment is part of C-SPAN's Lectures in History series, in which the network visits college classrooms across the country and tapes a single class session in its entirety for playback at a later date.
