JFK, The Last Speech, explores the dramatic relationship between two seminal Americans—President John F. Kennedy and the poet Robert Frost—which reached its tragic climax in a surprising encounter with Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev at the height of the Cold War. Born out of these events is Kennedy’s remarkable speech about poetry and power, which altered the life course of a group of Amherst college classmates. Presenter: Emeritus Professor of Political Science Robert Benedetti.
