What Do You Remember? For those of us alive on November 22, 1963, we probably remember where we were when we heard the news that President John F. Kennedy had been assassinated. What do you remember about the assassination and about JFK? What do you think about Kennedy’s enduring place in American history and our collective memory? Have you been to Dealey Plaza in Dallas? What were your impressions and feelings from visiting the site that tragically changed history?
Oral History Interview: On August 28, 2017, I was honored to be interviewed by The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza in Dallas as part of their Oral History Project to discuss my early recollections of President John F. Kennedy and his assassination, his enduring popularity and legacy, and reflections on my visit to Dealey Plaza on July 9, 2017. The 42 minute interview was conducted by the Museum’s curator, Stephen Fagin, who notes that the Museum’s Oral History Project consists of “more than 1,600 perspectives from individuals around the world, reflecting on President Kennedy, the 1960s, and the assassination, including childhood recollections that speak to the impact and long-term meaning of this tragic moment as well as assessments by academics and historians.” You can listen to the interview by clicking here.
