Life In The Shadows

This 9-minute film tells the story of U.S. President John F. Kennedy's pioneering work to help people with intellectual disabilities. At that time, this population was most often condemned to institutions that offered no education; instead, they found isolation and despair. Narrated by Eunice Kennedy Shriver. NOTE: This film contains outdated language.
