In the Spring of 1964, a few months after President Kennedy's death, Jacqueline Kennedy recorded a series of interviews with historian and family friend Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. At the age of 34, with the White House years behind her, she was speaking for the historical record - to preserve and shape her husband's legacy. The interviews, held in deposit at the Kennedy Library were sealed for 47 years. In 2011, the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy Presidency, her family decided it was the right time to share these conversations with the public. On September 14, 2011, portions of them will be featured in a special exhibit in the Museum at the JFK Presidential Library.
