When He was traveling with his wife Jacqueline and the Texas governor John Connally in an open-top convertible during a 10-mile motorcade through Dallas, Texas when gunman Lee Harvey Oswald fired three shots from the sixth-floor window of a nearby building.
Two shots hit President Kennedy in the head, taking his life. One bullet hit Connally, who survived the assassination attempt. two days later Oswald was shot and killed by Dallas nightclub owner Jack Ruby when he was being escorted out of police headquarters.
But before his death, President Kennedy had proposed and fully supported civil rights legislation that would totally outlaw discrimination that was based on race, religion, sex or national origin. The legislation became controversial and stalled in Congress that’s before Kennedy’s death.
