On the eve of the 2021 presidential inaugural, the Museum is partnering with Mass Humanities on a virtual screening of a new film JFK: The Last Speech, which explores the dramatic relationship between two American icons—John F. Kennedy and Robert Frost. The documentary chronicles how JFK’s last speech in his home state of Massachusetts at the dedication of the Robert Frost Library at Amherst College on October 26, 1963 inspired a group of Amherst College classmates to lives of service. Immediately following the film, Concord Museum Director Tom Putnam will moderate a conversation with presidential historian Ellen Fitzpatrick, Amherst College professor Rhonda Cobham-Sander, filmmaker Bestor Cram, and Middlebury Professor and Frost biographer Jay Parini.
