Overview:

This resource presents a short biography of John F. Kennedy, a Massachusetts politician who served as the 35th President of the United States. Kennedy's presidency came at the height of the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union. There was also no shortage of domestic issues as the Civil Rights movement gained more momentum. Kennedy seemed to be an ally of Dr. King and other activists, but any large role he could have played was cut short by his assassination.
