JFK in the summer of 1963

October 4, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

June 2023 marked the 60th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s visit to Ireland. The trip was a personal defining moment for him, in a summer of defining moments for his presidency.

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.

No booking required.
