On the 50th anniversary of the historic television debate between candidates John F. Kennedy and Richard M. Nixon in 1960, the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum is convening a panel of experts to reflect on the event and on how presidential debates have changed since then.

The panelists include: Ted Sorensen and William Wilson, both Kennedy advisors; and journalists Russell Baker, Marty Nolan and Sandy Vanocur, who each covered the 1960 debate.  Tom Oliphant, the Pulitizer Prize winner and former Boston Globe reporter, is the moderator.

This event, which runs from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m., is part of the Kennedy Library Forums, a series public affairs programs throughout the year.
