New Lincoln & Kennedy Display in Post Learning Commons

Our book display to support the symposium “Lincoln and Kennedy, from 1863 to 1963 to 2013: From Civil War to Civil Rights to the Meaning of America” is located on the first floor of the Post Learning Commons.

An all-SJU faculty panel discussion will celebrate the 150th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address and the 50th anniversary of John Fitzgerald Kennedy’s landmark Civil Rights Address. The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held on Thursday, Nov. 21, at 4:00 p.m., in the John Cardinal Foley Center on the James J. Maguire ’58 Campus.

“This panel centers on two vital and enduring speeches from two ennobled presidents,” says Saint Joseph’s President C. Kevin Gillespie, S.J. ’72. “Given that we will celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address on Nov. 19, and observe the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President Kennedy on Nov. 22, in the same week, this event is a great teachable moment for our students.”

The interdisciplinary panel draws on faculty expertise from the Departments of History, Political Science, English, and Theology and Religious Studies.
