Nearly half a century later, the date remains difficult for many to forget: Nov. 22, 1963, the day John F. Kennedy was assassinated. In grainy photographs and countless conspiracy theories, the day endures in our collective memory. What often gets submerged in these images and reports, though, is the story of the place that hosted Kennedy on that day, the city that saw his death firsthand: Dallas.
On the 49th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, Jim talks with Southeastern Louisiana University professor of history emeritus Michael Kurtz about his 1993 book, "Crime Of The Century". The book explains why Kurtz feels Lee Harvey Oswald was not the lone gunman in Dallas that day.
