Attorney, Artist, Sculptor Jack Kershaw Dies at 97

One of the greatest men I have ever known has passed away. He was one of my oldest and dearest friends. He represented James Earl Ray during one of the most tumultuous times in our Government‘s history. It was 1977 and the House Select Committee on Assassinations had been formed to investigate the assassinations of John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. Jack took on the formidable task of representing James Earl Ray.

His career suffered greatly because of that bold decision.

He was an absolutely amazing artist and sculptor besides being a geologist, publisher and what many would call a renaissance man.

He lived in Nashville Tennessee where he was grossly unappreciated after he took on the case of the assassination of MLK and made it clear that he did not buy the US Government and Tennessee State Government’s lies about the murder. He was convinced that the US Government had perpetuated a fraud on the American people by using the House Select Committee on Assassinations in the pretense of investigating the assassinations of JFK and MLK when actually the HSCA was used to continue the cover-up of the conspiracy behind the murders.

Despite many an attack on the man and his legacy his mark on the world will not be forgotten.
