In Dallas, events mark the 50th anniversary of JFK's assassination
DALLAS — The city's official commemoration event, "The 50th: Honoring the Memory of President John F. Kennedy," will be Nov. 22 in Dealey Plaza and includes historian and Pulitzer Prize-winning author David McCullough reading excerpts from some of Kennedy's speeches; the tolling of church bells throughout the city and a moment of silence at 12:30 p.m., the time Kennedy was shot; a performance by the Naval Academy Men's Glee Club; and a ceremonial flyover of military aircraft.
