Letters to Jackie: Remembering President Kennedy (11/17/2013)

Role: Voice/Himself
Status: Completed

Letters to Jackie is based on the book “Letters to Jackie: Condolences from a Grieving Nation” by Ellen Fitzpatrick. For two months after the President’s assassination, the White House received more than 800,000 letters for the first lady, who lost her husband and the father of her children. Letters poured in from all over the United States and from several nations around the world, and the writers represented all ages, races, religions and political persuasions. The writers included a 13-year-old suffering from polio, who wrote words of strength for Jackie; a Peace Corps volunteer who’d heard the news from his post in Ethiopia; and an African-American woman who wrote to tell the first lady how her husband’s efforts in the Civil Rights Movement had affected her life. The letters are read by some of today’s most recognizable celebrity voices.
