JFK, Rice University Address

This is an excerpt from a speech that President Kennedy gave at Rice University in Houston, TX in September 1962.  In just 1 more month, the nation would be embroiled in the Cuban Missile Crisis.  In this speech, JFK states clearly why we were going to go to the moon.  It’s a 3 minute clip, and the style and amazing skill of JFK as an orator are simply amazing… Watch how he works the crowd.
