Dallas tries to move on from JFK killing

City that 'killed Kennedy' seeks to redefine itself 50 years since US president's assassination.

    Commemorations are being held across the United States on the anniversary of John F Kennedy's assassination.

    It is exactly 50 years since the US president was shot in Dallas in 1963.

    For years it was described as the city that 'killed Kennedy'. Can it move past that stigmatisation?

    Al Jazeera's Alan Fisher reports from Dallas.
