The headline-grabbing events of John F. Kennedy’s years as president—from civil rights legislation to the Cuban missile crisis—were in many ways shaped out of sight by the personal relationships within the glamorous, ambitious, and destiny-driven Kennedy family.

American Dynasties: The Kennedys, a six-part CNN Original Series narrated by Martin Sheen, spans the lives of Joseph and Rose Kennedy and their children, uncovering how and why this single family so significantly impacted 20th-century America.

Join us for an exclusive free screening of the episode “Brothers in Arms,” which focuses on the year 1961, President John F. Kennedy’s first in office. During it, he leaned heavily on his younger brother, Attorney General Robert Kennedy, to help him navigate dealing with political challenges and disasters—as well as the stroke that left their father incapacitated.

A panel discussion follows the screening. View trailer below.
