WCVE Forum: American Moonshot: John F. Kennedy and the Great Space Race

Author Douglas Brinkley speaks about his new book, American Moonshot: John F. Kennedy and the Great Space Race at the Virignia Museum of History and Culture as part of the Stuart G. Christian, Jr. Lecture Series.

To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing, "Chasing the Moon," a new six-hour documentary series produced by PBS will explore the space race, from its earliest beginnings to the monumental achievement of the first lunar landing in 1969 and beyond. Chasing the Moon will premiere July 8-10, 9:00 - 11:00 p.m. on WCVE, WHTJ and WVPT PBS - with an encore broadcast on July 16, 23 and 30, 9:00 - 11:00 and a marathon broadcast on the anniversary, July 20, 3-9 p.m.
