JFK in the summer of 1963
October 4 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
The talk by U.S. historian Cecelia Hartsell will discuss President Kennedy’s trip to Ireland that summer and will feature the video of the ‘JFK in Ireland’ documentary.
The talk also examines two of the civil rights crises that President Kennedy faced during the summer of 1963, arguing that those crises shaped his progression toward addressing the issue of racial equality in the US as a moral crisis and cold war political threat.
