John F. Kennedy: The Spirit of Cold War Liberalism with Jason Duncan
Wednesday, December 4, 2013 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EST)
Grand Rapids, MI
Fifty years after his death, John F. Kennedy's legacy is often overshadowed by the shock of his assassination and the revelations concerning his private life. Kennedy governed at a time when political parties were less polarized, the economy was expanding, there was a general consensus on the necessity of the Cold War, and trust in the government was at an all time high. He met that moment in history by encouraging his fellow citizens to use the power and wealth of the United States to achieve greatness at home, overseas and even beyond the confines of the earth.
