Tomorrow at noon, we host a free screening of Crisis: Behind a Presidential Commitment at the National Archives.
A landmark in American documentary films, Robert Drew’s cinéma vérité work chronicles how President John F. Kennedy, along with his brother Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, clashed with Alabama Governor George Wallace over racial integration at the University of Alabama in 1963.
Special guest Dr. Sharon Malone will also speak about her sister Vivian Malone, who is featured in the film.
