Remembering Kennedy

JACKSONVILLE — Jacksonville Public Library circulation supervisor Lisa Tang looks over a display of information and photographs surrounding the assassination of President John F. Kennedy 50 years ago.

Flint resident Roger Graham created the display as part of the JHS Class of 1963's 50-year reunion this weekend, with the work visible to the public through Saturday.

Kennedy was in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963, traveling through Dealey Plaza in a presidential motorcade with his wife, Jacqueline, Texas Governor John Connally and the governor's wife, Nellie, when he was fatally shot by Lee Harvey Oswald, a sniper perched in an upper floor of the Texas School Book Depository.
