Caption

Cold War protest. Footage of an advertising aircraft flying over Rice University's Rice Stadium, Houston, Texas, USA, on 12 September 1962. The wording of the banner is 'Enforce the Monroe Doctrine', referring to a US anti-colonisation policy originating from the 19th century. At the time, President Kennedy had cited the Monroe Doctrine in relation to the developing Cuban Missile Crisis that came to a head the following month (October 1962). This footage was obtained during the visit by US President John F. Kennedy, who made a famous speech ('We choose to go to the Moon') at this stadium. This speech, and his earlier pledge of 1961, set the USA in direct competition with its Cold War rival the USSR, in what was known as the Space Race.
