|Title:||The Civil Rights movement: Robert Kennedy's speech on Martin Luther King's death|
Prepared by Sharon Moran, Norfolk Collegiate School, Norfolk, VA.
"On April 4, 1968 the Civil Rights Movement lost Martin Luther King to an assassin. A non-violent warrior had fallen and African Americans were facing a multitude of emotions. America was facing dark days ahead. Robert Kennedy responded to citizens of Indianapolis with this speech." Taken from http://www.gilderlehrman.org/teachers/seminar_docs/civilrights_doc1.html
Robert Francis Kennedy served as Attorney General of the United States from 1961-1964 during his brother's presidency when civil rights activism was widespread and civil rights issues were in the forefront of national concerns.
