Remembering JFK


“JFK”, the latest film in the American Experience series “The Presidents”, offers a fresh assessment of the enigmatic man, featuring interviews with Kennedy family members and noted historians. The film 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.
