Williams will lecture on Tuesday, Nov. 19 at noon and 7 p.m. in the Northeast State Auditorium (A202) on the main campus in Blountville.  Williams’ presentation entitled “THE JFK ASSASSINATION: FIFTY YEARS OF CONTROVERSY” details his passion for collecting memorabilia and information about one of the most researched and controversial subjects in American history.

Williams lecture includes details of the Warren Report, the Kennedy family’s political connections, and the mysterious figure of Lee Harvey Oswald.  Conspiracy researchers have attempted to link Kennedy’s killing to everyone from the Cuban government and the American mafia to the CIA and the Soviet Union.

Both lectures are free.  Conspiracy theorists, historians, and political junkies are invited to attend the evening event.  For more information, contact 423.279.7669 or e-mail jpkelly@northeaststate.edu.
