Mohave Community College broadcast delves into JFK evidence

Come take a trip to the first 24 hours following one of the most infamous and debated incidents in American history - the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

Mohave Community College students along with members of the public are invited to a virtual field trip through the evidence uncovered in the first 24 hours after the assassination.

Much of it has been used throughout the decades to support conflicting arguments and conspiracy theories.

The tour will be broadcast from The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza in Dallas. The museum is housed on the sixth and seventh floors of what was once the Texas School Book Depository, the place from which Lee Harvey Oswald (if you believe the history books) shot the president.

"The Sixth Floor Museum staff will lead an analysis about the evidence during the tour," said MCC's Extended Campus Dean Diana Stithem. "There will also be a question-and-answer session after the tour."

The college's Student Activities Council from the extended campus coordinated the 45-minute event, which starts at 10 a.m. Tuesday at all four of the college's campuses. The tour will be broadcast via Interactive Television in room 508 on the Kingman campus, 1971 Jagerson Ave.

No RSVP is necessary and the event is free. However, seating is limited and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
