MU’s Amicus Curiae Lecture on JFK Assassination

November 7, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Marshall University’s Amicus Curiae Lecture Series on Constitutional Democracy will feature Philip Shenon, author of the award-winning book, A Cruel and Shocking Act: The Secret History of the Kennedy Assassination.

Shenon’s lecture will be on Tuesday, Nov. 7, at 7 p.m. in the Brad D. Smith Foundation Hall. Shenon, an investigative journalist, reported for The New York Times for more than twenty years, serving as the Washington correspondent covering the Pentagon, the Justice Department and the State Department. He also served as a foreign correspondent reporting from more than sixty countries and several war zones.

Shenon will discuss the work of the lawyers on the Warren Commission and its ramifications, explore the most explosive conspiracy theories about Kennedy’s murder, and discuss a question raised by many: why, 60 years later, some secret government documents related to the assassination are still being hidden from the public.

The lecture is sponsored by Marshall’s Simon Perry Center for Constitutional Democracy with support from the West Virginia Humanities Council and is free and open to the public. For more information contact Proctor by e-mail at
