Event Details

To mark the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in November 1963, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and historian Richard Reeves joins Institute Director David Axelrod for an in-depth interview about JFK and his impact on American politics. This insightful, moderated conversation will explore the successes and failures of the Kennedy Administration during its nearly three years in office and also will ask the question: What might have become of the Kennedy presidency—and the nation—had the assassination never happened? We’ll examine these questions through the prism of economic policy, civil rights, the Cold War, Cuba, Vietnam, Camelot, presidential leadership and the student protest movements of the late 1960’s.
