A two-disc set containing the important and famous speeches of John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Jr., Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan. THE SPEECHES OF JOHN F. KENNEDY "...we stand today at the threshold of a new frontier..." John F. Kennedy, was dynamic, poised and relaxed at all times. The program focuses on Kennedy, the public orator and features every major address during his three years in the White House. THE SPEECHES OF MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. "I have a dream!" Martin Luther King, Jr., was perhaps the most inspirational speaker of all time. Follow his electrifying speeches from the early days as a young pastor in Montgomery, to the great march on Washington, including the final prophetic speech in Memphis just days before his tragic assassination. THE SPEECHES OF GERALD FORD "...the long national nightmare is over. Our constitution works." Features the former president swearing into office, officially pardoning Richard Nixon for all Watergate crimes, honoring Queen Elizabeth at her bicentennial visit to the United States, accepting the Republican Nomination and delivering his farewell address to Congress and the nation. THE SPEECHES OF RONALD REAGAN "We will never stop searching for a genuine peace." Provides a broad sample of appearances spanning the lengthy career of Ronald Reagan. From a 1964 televised speech in support of Barry Goldwater for President, to an economic debate with former CIA Director George Bush, to the famous "evil empire" and "Star Wars" presidential addresses, to his final words of farewell to the nation, his relaxed, affable communication demonstrates why he was considered to be an accomplished orator.
