Friday (Night) Show & Tell: Grace Kelly on JFK

It’s been a doozy of a week. And while I’d love to write here in detail about the anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the man, and his dreams for America (I’d never known he integrated the Peace Corps–how fantastic), I am down-deep-in-my-bones tired.

Instead, I thought I’d share a link to a wonderful interview I learned about via Twitter. It’s with Grace Kelly, and in it she remembers JFK, and shares how she felt about the man and his presidency. Her voice is unmistakable: poised and crystalline clear, oh so graceful, just as she seemed to be in real life. It’s set to animation, and even showcases some of her fashion sense. Truly–it’s really neat, y’all.

Check it out here from “Blank on Blank” and PBS Digital Studios:

And have a wonderful weekend!
