How JFK Won The White House

On this edition of Political Rewind, we talk with Curtis Wilkie , co-author of “ The Road to Camelot, Inside JFK’s Five-Year Campaign ,” which tells the story of his remarkable rise to the presidency. It’s been 54 years since the assassination of Kennedy, on November 22, 1963. As we mark the anniversary of his death, Wilkie tells the story of the young John Kennedy – the vibrant World War II navy veteran who was nudged into a political career by his famous Democratic power broker father Joseph Kennedy. The younger Kennedy embraced the role with enthusiasm and dedication to his cause: to become president of the United States. As you’ll hear, the South played an outsized role in Kennedy’s strategy for winning the 1960 presidential race. Wilkie was a longtime national and foreign correspondent for the Boston Globe.

The holidays mean lots of food and lots of trash. Atlanta began taking a different approach to waste earlier this year, in partnership with Rubicon Global, a waste management company. They say this “smart trash” model cuts costs for the city, and helps combat climate change. We talked with Atlanta Chief Resilience Officer Stephanie Stuckey-Benfield and Rubicon Global’s Michael Allegretti . Much of what we eat today was first developed for soldiers, and that influence is also felt on Southern food. We talked about this with food writer Anastacia Marx de Salcedo, author of the book “Combat-Ready Kitchen: How The U.S. Military Shapes The Way You Eat.” We also checked in with Brunswick farmer and army veteran Matthew Raiford. So, after turkey salad and sandwiches and soup, you might still have leftovers. And even when it’s not Thanksgiving, food waste is a big problem in landfills. What else could we do? Enter Compost Wheels. The Atlanta-based group takes food waste from homes and

Savannah’s NAACP chapter celebrated its centennial this fall at the historic First African Baptist Church.

UGA has a great football team this year. They’re ranked number seven in the country -- after a spell in first. But it’s not all good news. UGA rates dead last in the Southeastern Conference when it comes to graduation success rates for student athletes – all while the university’s overall student graduation rates are way up. Eric Kelderman is Senior Reporter for the Chronicle of Higher Education. Also with us is Professor of Sports Journalism at UGA, Vicki Michaelis. Beverly Daniel Tatum leads frank conversations about race. Back in 1997, the former Spelman College President wrote a book called, “Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?” Now, she’s updated the text. We caught up with her to mark the 20th anniversary edition. Savannah’s NAACP chapter celebrated its centennial this fall at the historic First African Baptist Church.
