30 hand picked films. A new one every day
Governor George Wallace will not let two black students into an Alabama school, against the wishes of President Kennedy. Loud shouts come from both sides of the issue as JFK stands by his decisions.

★★★★★ someone wrote that this is "the first movie that Barack Obama should watch in the White House screening room"; I say that this should be the first movie to see when you wish to commit yourself to modern documentary cinema.
Love these JFK docs TCM is banging out.
It's a honor to witness history.
I wish filmmakers were still able to shoot films like this in the White House. Such an amazing document of a turbulent time in American history.
