Each President has offered different styles of communicating his message to the United States and the world. The inauguration speech communicates this initial vision and defines each Presidency. As Donald Trump takes office on January 20, how will his inauguration speech set the tone for the next four years?
We’re now able to relive the televised inauguration speeches of every modern-day President and find new meaning in their famous words. The DECADES Network presents Inauguration Through the Decades, which will include the full televised broadcasts of 14 inauguration speeches beginning with John F. Kennedy challenging the nation to “ask not what their country could do for them,” through President Obama.
Emmy® and Peabody® Award-winning broadcast journalist Bill Kurtis — host of Inauguration Through the Decades — visits Ric to look back at these famous speeches and comment on how they defined Presidencies and made their mark in American history. www.decades.com
