jfkThe Afro-Asian revolution of nationalism, the revolt against colonialism, the determination of people to control their national destinies … in my opinion the tragic failure of both Republican and Democratic administrations since World War II to comprehend the nature of this revolution, and its potentialities for good and evil, has reaped a bitter harvest today—and it is by rights and by necessity a major foreign policy campaign issue that has nothing to do with anti-communism.

~ John F. Kennedy, from a speech given during the Stevenson campaign, 1956

Political Assassinations of the 1960s

The sixties saw four significant political assassinations that have bled into history. These include the deaths of John F. Kennedy, Malcolm X., Martin Luther King Jr., and Robert F. Kennedy.

The tragedies shook Americans to the core – the political leaders they had seen a glimmer of hope ended up facing the same fate.

JFK’s death, perhaps, shook people the most.

To this day, Americans talk about their lost heroes in a golden light.

Here’s a short summary of political assassinations of the 1960s:

  1. On November 22, 1963, John F. Kennedy was shot by Lee Harvey Oswald while riding a motorcycle in Dallas, Texas.
