... and I knew that I could never again raise my voice against the violence of the oppressed in the ghettos without having first spoken clearly to the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today -- my own government.

~ Martin Luther King, Jr., from his speech, "Beyond Vietnam", delivered at Riverside Church, New York, NY, April 4, 1967

    Don McGovern wraps up his assessment of Netflix’s newly hyped documentary, The Mystery of Marilyn Monroe: The Unheard Tapes, by exposing the evidence that Anthony Summers excluded from the film and deducing that the “documentary” is, in actually, just a sensationalized melodrama featuring dramatized pantomime by unidentified actors where viewers are treated to maudlin music and grimy film-noir-like cinematography.

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.
