I am concerned that, at the end of it all, there will only be more Americans killed; more of our treasure spilled out; and because of the bitterness and hatred on every side of this war, more hundreds of thousands of Vietnamese slaughtered; so that they may say, as Tacitus said of Rome: “They made a desert and called it peace.”

~ Robert F. Kennedy, from a speech during his Presidential campaign, Kansas State University, March 18, 1968

    The Unheard Tapes: Part 1

    Now that Netflix has released its newly hyped documentary, The Mystery of Marilyn Monroe: The Unheard Tapes, Don McGovern starts his assessment of the sometimes dubious content and often dubious qualifications of the sources interviewed by Anthony Summers in these “unheard” tapes in part 1 of this two-part article.

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.

  2. On February 21, 1965, Malcolm X was gunned down by three men.

  3. On April 4, 1968, Martin Luther King Jr. was hit by a sniper’s bullet while he was standing on the balcony in front of his room in Lorraine Motel, Memphis, Tennessee.

  4. On June 5, 1968, Robert F. Kennedy was shot shortly after midnight at the Ambassador Hotel, LA.
