On the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination, Dennis Murphy, professor of criminal justice, social and political science, will deliver his talk, “Rifle Reports and the Warren Report: Three Conspiracies in One?” This event is free and open to the public.
Friday, Nov. 22, Noon, in the Ogeechee Theatre of the Armstrong Student Union.
This is the third event in the annual Robert I. Strozier Faculty Lecture Series. Murphy’s lecture, “Rifle Reports and the Warren Report: Three Conspiracies in One?” takes place on Nov. 22 and marks the 50th anniversary of the day when President John F. Kennedy was gunned down on the streets of Dallas, Texas.
The police arrested Lee Harvey Oswald later that afternoon. Two days later, while surrounded by even more police, Oswald was himself gunned down. Newly sworn-in President Lyndon B. Johnson quickly appointed the Warren Commission to investigate the death of the president and the surrounding circumstances.
Murphy’s presentation will explore the Commission’s denial of any conspiracy behind either death and question the 26-volume Warren Report as a conspiracy of silence on that critical issue.
