Remembering President John F. Kennedy's Contribution to the Humanities

“I am certain that after the dust of centuries has passed over our cities, we, too, will be remembered not for victories or defeats in battle or in politics, but for our contribution to the human spirit.”

On behalf of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and the National Cultural Center
