Library to Present JFK Display

There are a few occasions in history when people can remember where they were when they heard monumental or life-changing news. The assassination of John F. Kennedy was definitely one of those events.

Beginning the week of November 11, the Jackson State Library will have a special display about the assassination of JFK and this iconic figure in American History. November 22 will mark the 50th anniversary of the assassination. For anyone who was alive and of school age at the time, this event is indelibly etched in their memories.

Scott Cohen, Library Director, has books, newspaper and magazine articles, flags and other commemorative items that will be on display through the end of the month. Do you have any collectibles or mementos you could share? If so, please stop by the library and see Scott or contact him at 425-2615 or via email at scohen@jscc.edu.
