AT&T, collaborating with the National Archives, its John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum, theFoundation for the National Archives, and the Kennedy Library Foundation, has created an app and website of the new exhibit, “To the Brink: JFK and the Cuban Missile Crisis,” bringing it to online audiences around the world. The app for iPad is available for free download in the App Store. At www.JFKCMC.org, Android, smartphone, other tablet and laptop users can also experience the exhibit.
“To the Brink” is a new exhibit at the National Archives that looks back at the Cuban Missile Crisis from the 50-year mark. The exhibit shows President Kennedy and his advisers in the throes of deliberation during 13 agonizing days in October 1962, as the United States and the then-Soviet Union stood on the brink of nuclear war. The peaceful resolution of the crisis, resulting in the removal of Soviet nuclear missiles from Cuba, is considered to be one of Kennedy’s greatest achievements.
To the Brink: JFK and the Cuban Missile Crisis” is currently showing at the National Archives’ Lawrence F. O’Brien Gallery in Washington, DC. Early next year, the exhibit will travel to the Kennedy Library in Boston.
