WBUR’s Radio Boston recently ran a segment on one of John F. Kennedy’s most memorable speeches. In 1963, Kennedy spoke at the Robert Frost Library groundbreaking ceremony held at Amherst College.
“When power corrupts, poetry cleanses,” Kennedy said, referencing Frost’s purposeful union between poetry and power.
We love this speech by Kennedy. It reminds us why poetry and Robert Frost are so special and important.
