Jackie Kennedy, Chautauqua History Comes Alive Talk

Join an audience that loves talking back to history to discuss Jackie Kennedy led by Marion Strobel, PhD, Furman University History Department chair.

Jackie Kennedy mesmerized foreign leaders and the American people. There is something mysterious and private about this very public person. Was she mythmaker of her husband’s legacy or shell shock PTSD survivor? How did America survive a decade of unprecedented political assassination and unpopular war? How did democracy survive the Revolutionary ‘60s?


This event is NOT a costumed performance. Leslie Goddard from Chicago will perform as Jackie Kennedy in the Chautauqua History Alive Festival “It’s Revolutionary!” – June 14-23.
