LETTERS TO JACKIE : Remembering President Kennedy



“I suppose we identified ourselves with the exuberance, the love of living, the ambition,  and the belief in the goodness of mankind of our youngest chief executive. We identified ourselves because his ideals were ours, and we admired the man who displayed so much courage, conviction, and faith in man. Our idealism has once again been shattered in the face of human depravity, and it has· left an emptiness which will not soon diminish. We hope that President Kennedy’s faith in America will be justified in the future, and that eventually, it will be our generation that upholds the trust without flinching. ”


“Letters to Jackie: Remembering President Kennedy is a beautiful and moving tribute to a nation at a time of mourning. While the national lost its president, Jackie Kennedy lost her husband and the father of her children, and these letters explore how some of the most relatable moments can happen during such a remarkable time,” TLC GM Amy Winter said.

The documentary honors the 50th anniversary of President Kennedy’s assassination and feature celebrities reading poignant letters sent to the then-first lady.
