In 1963, President Kennedy would make decisions that would reflect on his lasting legacy. It would also be a year that he would never complete after becoming the fourth sitting U.S. President to be assassinated on November 22, 1963. In this special JFK35 podcast series, we will look at some of the President’s key trips and policy decisions from 1963 and how they continue to live on today. We will reflect on his assassination and how the generation of the 1960s reacted to it. We will also speak with the following generations about how the President remains an influential figure.
John F. Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States, inspired a generation that transformed America.

Join Matt Porter and Jamie Richardson of the JFK Library Foundation as they dig into the archives at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston and interview their colleagues to get a behind-the-scenes look at JFK’s life and legacy.
