A collection of students at Harvard University are reminding us just how inspiring John F. Kennedy’s speeches remain today a half century after his assassination.
Students in a video produced by the Harvard Institute of Politics take turns reciting lines from Kennedy’s speeches, including his 1961 inauguration and his so-called “Peace” speech at American University in 1963.
The video was made as part of the Institute’s #EveryDayJFK campaign to mark the 50th anniversary of Kennedy’s death. The Institute was established in 1966 as a living memorial to President Kennedy, and they hope the video will help motivate students to enter public service.
