Abernathy and former federal communications commissioner Kathleen Quinn Abernathy will lead a lecture titled, “Washington, D.C. Behind the Veil: Reflections on both the Constitution and Federal Communications Law,” as part of Waynesburg University’s Stover Center for Constitutional Studies and Moral Leadership Lecture Series, Wednesday, April 9. 

The lecture will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the Goodwin Performing Arts Center on the campus of Waynesburg University. Admission is free, and the public is invited to attend. 

According to Dr. Lawrence M. Stratton, director of Waynesburg University’s Stover Center for Constitutional Studies and Moral Leadership and assistant professor of ethics and constitutional law, the Stover Center is privileged to welcome the Abernathys to Waynesburg University as “stellar” examples of American political, intellectual and professional leadership.

“Professor Charles Abernathy is one of America’s premier constitutional scholars and teachers who has an international following as an interpreter of American jurisprudence,” Stratton said. “Former FCC Commissioner Kathleen Abernathy used her analytic skills to update communications law for the digital age and is a widely respected corporate executive.”  

Kathleen Quinn Abernathy was appointed by President George W. Bush to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in 2001 and confirmed unanimously by the U.S. Senate.  She shaped American communications law regarding broadband communications, broadcast, cable, satellite and wireless both on the FCC and as a Washington, D.C., lawyer.  She is currently executive vice president of external affairs at Frontier Communications Corporation.  She earned a bachelor’s degree from Marquette University and a Juris doctorate degree from the Catholic University, Columbus School of Law.

Charles F. Abernathy, professor of Law at Georgetown University Law Center, is the author of several books and articles including the first modern case book on federal civil rights law, “Civil Rights and Constitutional Litigation,” and the premier introduction to the American legal system for international lawyers, “Law in the United States.”  He is the co-author of “The Law of Equal Employment Opportunity.”  He was a Fulbright Professor of Law in Egypt from 1983 to 1984 and holds a Bachelor of Arts degree, a Juris doctorate and a master of law degree from Harvard University. 

Waynesburg University’s Stover Center for Constitutional Studies and Moral Leadership is committed to creatively transforming the ethical state of the polis, bringing insights from the U.S. Constitution’s Founding Era and Christianity to bear in the contemporary public square.
