After America in the Making – John F. Kennedy
N.C. Wyeth’s America in the Making depicts twelve dramatic scenes taken from American history beginning with North American explorer Francisco Vasquez de Coronado and ending with Abraham Lincoln. But, what are some of the major American moments of the 20th and 21st centuries? This program will show the film John F. Kennedy: Years of Lightning Days of Drums. Made by the United States Information Agency in 1964 as a memorial tribute to President Kennedy to be shown overseas, this film captures the spirit and vitality of his presidency with excerpts from many of his speeches as well as color footage of his swearing in and inaugural address.
