High Hopes Exhibit: The Journey of John F. Kennedy
On November 22, 1963, the 35th President of the United States, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, was assassinated while riding in a motorcade through the streets of Dallas, Texas. Kennedy’s short presidency was marked by great hope and promise but also tension and conflict. How he arrived in his position, the youngest elected president in history and the only Catholic to hold the office, is a story of both determination and privilege. The second born son of a political dynasty, Kennedy’s rise to power may be seen as inevitable but his ascension was hard fought as he battled against severe health problems and overcame his ailments to become a war hero then a U.S. Congressman and Senator and ultimately the leader of the free world.
