JFK: 5 DECADES OF PROGRESS
Beginning in October 2015 and culminating in the world premiere of FWOpera’s JFK by David T. Little and Royce Vavrek, JFK: 5 Decades of Progress will include six unique events focused on the presidential platforms of John F. Kennedy and the progression of those topics during the 50 years since his presidency. The series will highlight a variety of important topics, policies, and events that helped define President Kennedy’s time in office. From issues like Civil Rights, U.S foreign policy, and the Space Race to the evolution of journalism and government support of the arts, JFK: Five Decades of Progress will show how far – or not so far in some instances – the U.S has come since the President’s time in Texas.
