Join Active Minds for a look at John F Kennedy’s life and legacy. Kennedy’s brief presidency coincided with some of the most dramatic foreign policy events of his time including the construction of the Berlin Wall, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and the escalation of the Vietnam War. In this program, we will cover these milestones, and also seek to go beyond them toward a deeper understanding of the man behind the public image. For information on Active Minds go to www.activeminds.com PDF of the Active Minds Lecture Series.
