Film Consultant to Speak at SCF Venice

(Bradenton, Fla., October 28, 2013) — Researcher Jack Rabito will lead a discussion about the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy at 11 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 21, at State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota (SCF) Venice, 8000 S. Tamiami Trail, building 800, Selby Room. Rabito served as a consultant to director Oliver Stone during the making of the controversial film, "JFK."

Rabito, a Venice resident, has spent nearly 30 years researching the assassination and taught a popular class on the subject at Rock Valley College, Rockford, Ill. He will present counter theories to the Warren Commission's conclusion that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone assassin. Rabito also will give his interpretation of the 26-second film of the shooting recorded by Abraham Zapruder, a bystander.

Sponsored by the History/Political Science Club at SCF, the lecture is free and open to the public. Reservations are not required. Seating is first come, first served.
