Inspired by John F. Kennedy's Pulitzer Prize-winning book, these programs from the highly acclaimed television series examine outstanding examples of moral courage.

Winner of the 1964 Peabody Award for their “faithful, artistic and sensitive portrayal of some of the most moving episodes in American history,” these dramas show decisive moments in the lives of heroic Americans who risked their careers, their reputations, and in some cases their lives to fight for what they believed. A painstaking collaboration of noted writers, directors, performers, and historians, this series, according to the New York Times, “succeeds entirely in its dual mission: to stand on its own as an excellent entertainment and to capture in dramatic form history’s exciting pertinency to current events.” Each program includes a teacher’s guide.
