Description: 

Screening and discussion of JFK: American Experience.

Forever enshrined in myth by an assassin’s bullet, John F. Kennedy’s presidency has often defied objective appraisal. This new portrait offers a fresh assessment of the man, his accomplishments and his unfulfilled promise. Produced and directed by Susan Bellows, JFK features interviews with Kennedy family members and historians including Robert Dallek, Robert Caro, and Evan Thomas. Beginning with Kennedy’s childhood years as the privileged but sickly second son of one of the wealthiest men in America, the film explores his early political career as a lackluster congressman, his successful run for the U.S. Senate, and the game-changing presidential campaign that made him the youngest elected president in U.S. history.

The Panel will be moderated by Professor Bill Doyle.
 
Panelists include:
Professors Paul Silver (History Department)
David Plazek (Political Science Department)
Tyron Shaw (Journalism Department)
Jim Moran (Philosophy Department)

This event is free and open to the public.
