Robert Kennedy Speech

This project focuses on the impromptu speech Robert Kennedy gave on April 4th, 1968 in Indianapolis, IN. Former president John F. Kennedy’s younger brother was campaigning for the Democratic presidential nomination. It fell to him to inform the mostly black crowd that had come to hear him speak that Martin Luther King, Jr had just been assassinated on a motel balcony in Memphis, Tennessee.
