Olney College hosts conference on famous assassinations


Historians, academics and conspiracy theorists are all gathering at Olney Central College for a conference focused on assassinations of the 1960s.

Speakers and guests are spending the weekend looking into the deaths of President John F. Kennedy, Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. 

By discussing the assasinations and considering several theories related to the deaths, attendees and speakers intend to share how the three events shaped the future of democracy in the United States.

Many of the keynote speakers have devoted years of work to the study of these particular events. 

“So what you have here are different speakers that have worked very very hard  and they immerse themselves for years and years and most of us have. I have two masters degrees I’m not a conspiracy theorist I’m a conspiracy realist,” said guest speaker Edgar Tatro. 

The conference will run through the weekend, ending Monday evening.
