EXCELLENT QUALITY. Good MS and WS of JFK. JFK addresses many fundamental issues: asks Americans to examine their consciences and to exercise tolerance.

Every American ought to have the right to be treated as he would wish to be treated. He cites statistics on obstacles for advancement and survival for African-Americans. We preach freedom around the world, and we mean it, and we cherish our freedom here at home, but are we to say to the world, and much more importantly, to each other that this is the land of the free except for the Negroes...? JFK announces that he will ask Congress to draft civil rights legislation. (For transcript of entire speech, see http: www.cs.umb.edu jfklibrary j061163.htm) DN (8024) 03:21:21:21 END
