Gail Buckley, writer and chronicler of undiscovered American history, will speak Thursday, Feb. 12, as part of Old Dominion's President's Lecture Series. Her talk, "Black America at War: From George Washington to George Bush," will be held at 8 p.m. in the Mills Godwin Jr. Life Sciences Building Auditorium. It is free and open to all public.

Buckley's first book, "The Hornes: An American Family," is an inspired history of her mother, musical legend Lena Horne. Her latest work, "American Patriots: The story of Blacks in the Military from the Revolution to Desert Storm," chronicles an untold part of American history about the heroes that were left out of textbooks.

A graduate of Radcliffe College, Buckley has narrated a documentary on black American families for PBS and has written articles for numerous magazines including the New York Times and The Los Angeles Times.
