AMERICAN EXPERIENCE

JFK, Part 1, Chapter 1

  • Aired: 11/11/2013
  • 09:05
  • Rating: NR
By the time he came of age, John Fitzgerald Kennedy inhabited a world of special exemption: the family estate in suburban New York, the summer compound in Hyannis Port, the winter retreat in Palm Beach. The story of his family's heroic multi-generational rise from the want of Irish famine might well have been a misty old folktale. The past was not the point in the Kennedy household.
