On this day... in 1963, JFK was in Houston

President JFK and the Former First Lady were in Houston at the Rice Hotel on November 21, 1963, the eve of his assassination. A silent color home movie shot on 8mm film. In this film, they made an impromptu appearance at a LULAC event. Mariachis were playing behind them and Jackie, who knew spanish was translating the song to Jack. Also, KTRH was headquartered at the Rice Hotel at the time.

 Also, footage of their drive through the city of Houston, which sure looked quite different 50 years ago. This too is footage recorded on November 21, 1963, the day before he was killed in Dallas, Texas on a tour of the state.
