John F. Kennedy Audio & Video

John F. Kennedy, 35th President of the United States, was a complex man with an interesting public and private life. His legacy has many aspects to it: father, husband, and President. He led a private life shrouded with mystery and a few scandals, which would come to the public's attention many years after his assassination in Dallas, Texas in 1963.

Growing up in Brooklyn, New York, he lived a privileged life with money and power. His family life was very large and he grew up with eight brothers and sisters. His extended family was also a big influence on him. John graduated from Harvard and later went into the Navy. He suffered a back injury and later returned to his private life. His father had political hopes for him. In 1952 he was elected to the Senate. He met and married Jacqueline Bouvier the following year. This was the beginning of his political road to the White House.

One LearnOutLoud.com we feature a number of his speeches including a number of speech collections on audio download such as: JFK: The Kennedy Tapes and John F. Kennedy: The JFK Wit.
