CNN Exclusive: JFK Photos Unseen Since the 1960's Revealed

Many of them have been unseen for half-a-century. Tens of thousands of photographs of John F. Kennedy during his presidency were stored away as soon as they were developed. According to collector and filmmaker, Keya Morgan, Kennedy White House photographer Cecil Stoughton had them in boxes. Stoughton captured Kennedy in public and private moments.

Morgan recently bought the boxes of Stoughton's photo at auction.  He plans to have them available through his website,  But Morgan gave CNN an exclusive sneak peek.  With producer Alan Duke, Keya Morgan opened the boxes of the photos that haven't seen light in more than four decades.   It's a fitting revelation as the 50th anniversary of Kennedy's inauguration approaches on January 20. 

To honor that occasion, the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum released 200,000 documents online.  The public collection is available at

    It's typical that media would be interested in Kennedy's celebrity and not the injustice of his murder, a coup by scum within this govt. He was the last president who stood up to the military and cia, was beheaded for his idealism and desire to protect this nation from them, and all the media can do is gush over photographs and never show an honest iota of interest in the same forces that murdered him, which are murdering the Constitution today, sending the American economy into 3rd world status and saddling us with the military/police state he faced up to and feared would usurp constitutional control, voicing his concerns unfortunately only in private, as recounted anecdotally by friends and associates, and as warned publicly by Eisenhower 50 years and 3 days ago in his farewsell address.

    We have never heeded his warning, for we have been under their thrall ever since, the worst citizenry, the least vigilant, of any on Earth.
