On October 26, 1963, weeks before President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, he delivered a speech at Amherst College to dedicate the Robert Frost Library. JFK - THE LAST SPEECH captures this remarkable address to the students which emphasized Kennedy’s belief in national service and the importance of the arts. The program also details Kennedy’s relationship with the poet Robert Frost, who read a poem at Kennedy’s inauguration and served as a cultural emissary to Russia during Kennedy’s presidency. Throughout the documentary, students from the Amherst Class of ’64 share how the president’s words influenced their lives.
