American Visionary: John F. Kennedy’s Life and Times

(Wednesday) (Sunday)

President John F. Kennedy’s administration coincided with a golden age of photojournalism in America. No single politician was photographed more than Kennedy—from his first congressional bid as a decorated war hero in 1946, his fairytale marriage to Jacqueline Bouvier in 1953, his run for the White House in 1960 and role as commander in chief, to the tragedy of his death in Dallas in 1963.President John F.

Kennedy’s greatest speeches alongside essays by historians, leading political thinkers, writers, and artists. The book presents Kennedy at his best—thought-provoking, inspiring, eloquent, and wise—on a number of wide-ranging topics, including civil rights, the race to the moon, the environment, immigration, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and more. JFK demonstrates the deep relevance of his words today and his lasting power and influence as an American leader and orator.CreditAmerican Visionary: John F.

Generous support for the exhibition has been provided by the Governance Institute and the Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation.
