Kennedy 1961 Inaugural Speech

January 21, 2011

This is the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s 1961 inaugural. In the U.S. Capitol Rotunda the other day, political leaders gathered to commemorate his inaugural and the audio of his speech. Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg was present for the occasion. That event can be watched here. The C-SPAN Video Library contains a video copy of the original address. We thought we would highlight it here for anyone who wanted to watch it.
