A visual documentation of the site of John F. Kennedy’s assassination in Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963. The former U.S. president’s assassination sparked a plethora of conspiracy theories in the American popular consciousness that persist to this day.

Kennedy’s administration escalated U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War and oversaw a failed U.S. military invasion of Cuba at the Bay of Pigs in 1961. Various white supremacist terrorist bombings by segregationists in the south targeting civil rights activists occurred during his term in office. At news of the assassination, African-American leader and human rights activist Malcolm X infamously likened it to “chickens coming home to roost”.
