JFK's famous phone call to Coretta Scott King

04:29

With the 1960 presidential election just days away, Democratic candidate John F. Kennedy made a telephone call that some historians say earned him an unprecendented amount of African-American support in the polls. Kennedy called Coretta Scott King, wife of the famed civil rights leader who had just been arrested for violating probation. Kennedy offered Coretta his support and provided encouraging words. King was released from jail a day later. This exclusive clip from PBS' upcoming JFK special provides context for that important phone call.
