Civil Rights Address by John F. Kennedy

My studies of EEOC have led me to some interesting sources. I recommend this Civil Rights Address by John F. Kennedy. This site has audio and transcript.

This speech is our President calling on our nation to support the legislation he had asked Congress to write. He said, "Next week I shall ask the Congress of the United States to act, to make a commitment it has not fully made in this century to the proposition that race has no place in American life or law."

I am studying for the PHR (Professional in Human Resources) Certification Exam. I'll post about it here from time to time.
