VIRTUAL TALK: “Kennedy’s Avenger” with David Fisher
October 7, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm$10.00
Assassination, Conspiracy, and the Forgotten Trial of Jack Ruby
No crime in history had more eyewitnesses. It was November 24, 1963, two days after President Kennedy was shot. Jack Ruby, a troubled nightclub owner, slipped quietly into the Dallas police station and assassinated the assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald. Millions of Americans witnessed the killing on live television, yet there were still so many unanswered questions—and even more conspiracy theories. The trial that followed pitted the nation’s most flamboyant lawyer against a tough-as-Texas prosecutor. How do you defend a man who was seen pulling the trigger? And, more importantly, how did Jacky Ruby die an innocent man? David Fisher unveils the astonishing details behind the first major trial of the television century and reminds us the defendant wasn’t the only one being judged. The world was also laser-focused on the city of Dallas and the American legal system.
