Not really a political discussion topic, but this date in history certainly has had some memorable moments in the not so distant past:

1963- Civil rights leader Medgar Evers was assassinated by Byron de la Beckwith
1967 - The Supreme Court issued the landmark Loving decision, striking down state laws against interracial marriage;
1978- Son of Sam Killer David Berkowitz received his 6 life term sentence;
1987- President Reagan delivered his memorable "Mr. Gorbachev- tear down this wall" speech
1991- Boris Yeltsin elected president of the Russian republic;
1994- OJ Simpson murdered Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman

Also the 6th anniversary of one of the worst mass shootings in American history, the Pulse nightclub in Orlando.

And JFK's civil rights speech, one of the most historic presidential speeches in history, I'd think top 5 probably. Impressively enough the same month as another top 5, JFK's 'peace speech' addressing the cold war.
