You are invited to a special screening of the National Geographic’s Emmy(R) Award-winning One Day in America franchise called JFK: One Day in America

The series chronicles in real-time the day JFK was assassinated on 11/22/63 and following days including the funeral on 11/25. The entire three segments will be shown once in the Scudder Family Center for Civic Engagement.  The three-part series will be shown in one seating, starting at 1:00pm.

Seating is limited to 50 guests. Reserve your complimentary ticket below.

“This series is for all generations — those who remember staring at their television in disbelief in 1963 and those less familiar with former President John F. Kennedy and his assassination,” said David Glover, executive producer for 72 Films. “By bringing history to life through this unbelievable real-time footage and firsthand stories from those who lived this tragedy, our hope is for viewers to experience this moment that changed the course of U.S. history and better understand its impact.”

The entire three segments will be shown once in the Scudder Family Center for Civic Engagement at the below times:

1:00PM: Assassination 

President John F. Kennedy and his wife, Jackie, traveled to Texas with an eye on the 1964 elections, along with a team of secret service agents. During a motorcade in downtown Dallas, JFK is brutally shot in broad daylight and later tragically pronounced dead at Parkland Hospital with his grieving wife in the next room. America changes forever.

2:00PM: Manhunt

The race is on to track down JFK’s killer, but before he is arrested, the assassin kills again. Meanwhile, Jackie Kennedy boards Air Force One to return JFK’s body to Washington. Still wearing her bloodstained dress, she witnesses LBJ sworn in as president. As the net closes around suspected killer Lee Harvey Oswald, his co-workers and family face interrogation.

3:00: Revenge

President Kennedy’s body arrives back in Washington, and a grieving Jackie Kennedy leads the funeral march to honor him. In Dallas, Lee Harvey Oswald is charged with JFK’s murder, but the world is shocked again when Oswald himself is shot dead while still in police custody by nightclub owner Jack Ruby. With Oswald dead, there is no reckoning, and America will never be the same.
