Celebrating the Centennial of John F. Kennedy @ Walter and Leonore Annenberg Theater | Washington | District of Columbia | United States

To commemorate the centennial of President John F. Kennedy’s birth, some of the nation’s leading historians discuss the life and legacy of the nation’s 35th president.

The program will also focus on the book, “JFK: A Vision for America,” a compendium of Kennedy’s most important speeches, with commentary by leading American and international figures. Stephen Kennedy Smith, Kennedy’s nephew, and Douglas Brinkley co-wrote the book.

The program features:

  • Robert Dallek, former professor of history at Boston University and author of “An Unfinished Life: John F. Kennedy, 1917-1963”
  • Fredrik Logevall, professor of history and international affairs at Harvard University
  • Stephen Kennedy Smith, lecturer at the Sloan School of Management at MIT and co-author of “JFK: A Vision for America”
  • Ted Widmer, director of the John W. Kluge Center at the Library of Congress

Smith will sign copies of the book, which will be available for purchase, following the program.
