The Assassination of John F. Kennedy

  President John F Kennedy was assassinated in 1963, fatally shot by former U.S. Marine Lee Harvey Oswald, while riding in an open motorcade with his wife Jacqueline in Dallas, Texas.   The 35th president of the United States was known for his charm and his political reform on how the outside world viewed America.   He showed the world that the red, white and blue nation could be diplomatic with the way he handled the Cuban missile crisis, which would have been a nuclear mess, if it was handled with missiles instead of letters.   He also made history on June 11, 1963 on television and over the radio when he proposed the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which is a provision to the original act.   The changes included outlawing discrimination against racial, ethnic, women, national and religious minorities.   Seven months after his untimely death the act was passed.   Source: Wikipedia/Image: Biograph.com @HerToronto
