Civil Rights Message

by John F. Kennedy

This afternoon, following a series of threats and defiant statements, the presence of Alabama National Guardsmen was required on the University of Alabama to carry out the final and unequivocal order of the United States District Court of the Northern District of Alabama. That order called for the admission of two clearly qualified young Alabama residents who happened to have been born Negro.

That they were admitted peacefully on the campus is due in good measure to the conduct of the students of the University of Alabama, who met their responsibilities in a constructive way.

I hope that every American, regardless of where he lives, will stop and examine his conscience about this and other related incidents. This Nation was founded by men of many nations and backgrounds. It was founded on the principle that all men are created equal, and that the rights of every man are diminished when the rights of one man are threatened.

Today we are committed to a worldwide struggle to promote and protect the rights of all who wish to be free.

JFK Politically he was democratic

JFK was a democrat. both local and national news have been reminding us that it is fifty years since one of our great leaders; President John F. Kennedy had his life taken. John F. Kennedy comes to the minds of many when we are asked to reflect on a great leader. Undoubtedly, Kennedy was a leader of, and for the people. his decisions were based on the approval of the people. There are several other leadership styles that may be used to describe Kennedy such as making transformations and behaviors differ, but the most representative is that of a servant leader.
