Join us in November at Bismarck State College to examine the milestones of President John F. Kennedy's one thousand days in office, and the legacy of those three years.
One of our keynote speakers is native North Dakotan Clint Hill, the courageous Secret Service agent who leapt onto the back of the presidential limousine in the midst of the assassination on November 22, 1963. Fifty Years Later, Clint Hill tells his story for the first time - how a Secret Service agent who started his life in an orphanage became the most trysted man in the life of the most captivating First Lady of our time.
Hill's incredible story of courage, integrity, and resilience is one of the many compelling Kennedy stories that will be shared next November as part of the The Kennedy Legacy: 50 Years Later.
Our purpose is to explore the life, career, politics, vision, and legacy of John F. Kennedy. We will spend part of a day discussing the assassination in a careful and rigorous way, but the focus of the public humanities symposium will be on Kennedy’s achievement and his legacy.
Other symposium topics include:
- Kennedy in North Dakota
- Cold War in North Dakota
- The Warren Commission
- Conspiracy theories
- A Kennedy concert by the Bismarck Mandan Symphony Orchestra
