"John F. Kennedy and Civil Rights: Fifty Years After" was the topic of discussion among three key civil rights advocates who, during the Kennedy and Johnson administrations, played a pivotal role in ending racial segregation and securing civil rights for African Americans.

The talk was held at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 2, 2011, in Dodds Auditorium, Robertson Hall. The event featured John Doar '44, former assistant attorney general for the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice and civil rights prosecutor in the "Mississippi Burning" trial; Nicholas Katzenbach '45, former U.S. attorney general and participant in many critical civil rights initiatives who drafted and secured passage of the landmark 1964 Civil Rights Act; and Harrison Jay Goldin '57, former attorney in the Department of Justice Office of Civil Rights who was assigned to be roommates with and protectorate of James Meredith as he became the first African-American student to attend the University of Mississippi. Thomas Putnam MPA '87, director of the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum, moderated the discussion.
