WLU Professor Emeritus Charles Campanizzi’s presentation, “Who Killed JFK?” will meet twice, from 10-11:30 a.m., Thursday and Friday, Nov. 21 and 22. His class will look at the overall tragedy that rocked the nation and how it has shaped American history.

According to Campanizzi, the course provides evidence of a conspiracy that killed President John. F. Kennedy. Free assassination research information will be available at the program.

Campanizzi is an educator, researcher and psychologist. For more than 44 years, he has conducted in-depth research on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
