Headliners: Robert F. Kennedy
A half century after his death, Robert F. Kennedy remains a hero to millions of Americans. His life was shaped by tragedy which compelled him to help others. Though he grew up in privilege, he was a champion of those who suffered poverty and inequality. He was a complex man, an Attorney General, Senator and presidential candidate in his own right. He played an essential role in so many historic moments including his brother Jack’s elections to the Senate and the presidency, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and making the Civil Rights Act part of the Kennedy agenda. In this hour, a life of family, politics and loss.
