Register for "JFK and Domestic Policy"

September 25, 2023, 8:30 AM CT - 2:30 PM CT | Hosted by: Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza (Dallas, TX) | Discussion Leader: Professor David Krugler - University of Wisconsin-Platteville

John F. Kennedy's "New Frontier" agenda sounded wonderful but faced opposition. Some worried that his push for an increased minimum wage and aid for education and anti-poverty programs would hurt the economy. His slow action on Civil Rights frustrated African Americans. What did the young president accomplish? Did his assassination inspire the nation to carry on the New Frontier? Join us for a stimulating conversation about John F. Kennedy's domestic policies.

All attendees of this free seminar will receive a letter of attendance as well as paper and digital copies of the reader.


Teaching American History
"It gave me a better understanding of the Founders’ views. They saw that restricting religious liberty is not only wrong; it leads to animosity within society. This year, I will begin both my government class and my class on “Law and Modern Society” with George Washington’s Letter to the Hebrew Congregation at Newport." — Sean B.
