Exploring President Kennedy’s New Frontier Today Student Program
March 30, 2021 | 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.| Free
In his 1960 presidential nomination speech, Kennedy envisioned a New Frontier. His idea for a New Frontier included confronting many of the same challenges we still encounter today such as civil rights, foreign policy, science and education. Students will discuss the challenges Kennedy faced during his administration and determine how far we have come since 1960 and how far we have yet to go.
The event will be hosted over Zoom and streamed live to the Presidential Primary Sources Project Facebook page. To receive Zoom connection information, register for this free program at: https://forms.gle/JAj7ywgfLqMPUwRC9
