PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Civil Rights Speech Worksheet for John F. Kennedy

This primary source worksheet features President Kennedy's amazing June 11, 1963 speech on civil rights. The crisis in Alabama over desegregation led Kennedy to issue an appeal to the consciences of Americans to support a bold civil rights bill that addressed injustices facing African Americans.

Following the 2 page speech, a set of questions has students analyze President Kennedy's words in context of the Civil Rights Movement. An answer key for these questions is provided as well as Youtube link to video of the speech.

This is one of my favorite speeches to have students analyze for the beauty and power of JFK's words and something I make sure to use ever year that I teach the Civil Rights Movement. It is great for a regular high school US History class, as well as AP, or honors level students.
