This week the Law Library kicked off Sunshine Week—the national celebration of freedom of information and government transparency—with an out-of-this-world guest speaker. John Greenewald, owner of The Black Vault Archive, spoke to students about his life-long pursuit of the truth about UFOs and government cover-ups. Mr. Greenewald has submitted over 10,000 FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) requests to dozens of federal agencies, and has collected over 3 million declassified documents relating to UFOs and the government’s knowledge of unexplained phenomena. He is the author of several books on the subject, including Inside the Black Vault: The Government’s UFO Secrets Revealed and Secrets from the Black Vault.
For Sunshine Week, Mr. Greenewald joined the University of Richmond School of Law to discuss his experience using FOIA to uncover the truth that the government doesn’t want us to know. He is the first to admit that he’s not sure if aliens are the ones piloting UFOs, but he can definitively prove that the U.S. government knows more than it is telling the public about UFOs. Using declassified documents, he has shown the government’s “official stories” are often directly contradicted by evidence obtained through FOIA.
Presented here is John Greenewald’s full Sunshine Week presentation.
The University of Richmond School of Law would like to extend our sincere thanks to Mr. Greenewald for his participation in our Sunshine Week celebration.
