"Secretly recorded excerpts from those White House discussions are the centerpiece of “To the Brink: JFK and the Cuban Missile Crisis,” a traveling exhibit at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum that opens Friday and continues through November. The excerpts, part of 43 hours of recordings related to the Cuban Missile Crisis, will be available at six listening stations in a 3,000-square-foot gallery."
"Unbeknownst to almost all the participants, JFK recorded those White House meetings. Excerpts from the 43 hours of secret recordings relating to the Cuban Missile Crisis are presented in the gallery and form the centerpiece of this exhibit. Original documents, artifacts, and photographs from the National Archives and the Kennedy Library complement the tapes in a dramatic presentation that draws the visitor into this milestone 20th-century event."
