JFK Assassination 50 Years Later: A Commemoration
Start Date: 11/22/2013Start Time: 1:00 PM
End Date: 11/22/2013

Event Description:
Join the Saint Anselm College community for an afternoon of events as part of the JFK Assassination 50 Years Later: A Commemoration event series.

First, the film Reasonable Doubt: The Single-Bullet Theory and the Assassination of John F. Kennedy, will be shown followed by James Lesar, Esq. a Freedom of Information Act Specialist who will present a talk entitled Freedom of Information Act and the Warren Commission Executive Session Transcripts. Then, hear a reading of the Executive Session Transcripts from January 27th and panel discussion with James Lesar and David Wrone.

James H. Lesar Esq. is widely recognized as one of the nation’s top attorneys in the Freedom of Information arena. For 25 years, Lesar has worked to increase individual access to government information under the Freedom of Information Act and has filed nearly 1,000 Freedom of Information Act requests and has obtained the release of 1 million pages of documents, primarily from the FBI and the CIA.

He serves as president of the Assassination Archives and Research Center, a public service organization dedicated to collecting, preserving and disseminating information concerning political assassinations and focused primarily on the killings of John F. Kennedy and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Lesar also played a crucial role in the passage of the JFK Records Act, a measure spurred by the groundswell of public opinion in the wake of the popular film, “JFK” against the lack of information forthcoming from government agencies regarding the Kennedy assassination. Lesar assisted those drafting the act in Congress to formulate language which ensures greater access and liberal disclosure provisions, and also testified on behalf of the act before Congress.

David R. Wrone, expert on the assassination of John F. Kennedy and former History professor at the University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point, has conducted 40 years of research on the assassination of John F. Kennedy. He concentrated on evidence found in files of the FBI and, he has sued the government for Zapruder Film records, especially relating to its acquisition and purchase.

Wrone is also author to many books, including, The Assassination of John F. Kennedy: A Comprehensive Historical and Legal Bibliography, 1963-1979 (1980), Who's the Savage: The Documentary History of the Mistreatment of the Native North Americans (1982) and The Zapruder Film: Reframing JFK's Assassination (2003).
