President John F Kennedy delivers 'Integration speech' at White House, Washington DC, addressing issues of race discrimination, civil rights, and racial integration. He says he will ask Congress to pass legislation giving all Americans the right to be served in facilities that are open to the public, thus banning separate facilities for whites and blacks, also known as "Jim Crow" discrimination laws. Kennedy says this is an elementary right. He further notes that Jim Crow laws are an "arbitrary indignity that no American in 1963 should have to endure." Scene of White House.
