What Has The Government Been Hiding? 54 Years of Secrets & the Release of the JFK Records


by SixthFloorMuseum



The President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992 mandated that by October 26, 2017, the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) must release all withheld government files pertaining to the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy. What will be revealed as these documents are examined? Will the contents provide answers or create more questions?

The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza presented an engaging program featuring best-selling authors Dr. Larry Sabato of the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics and Philip Shenon, former New York Times reporter, who discussed the ramifications and revelations of this final release of the records with moderator Dave Davies, host of NPR’s “Fresh Air.”

This presentation took place at the Museum on November 18, 2017.
