On April 4, 2018, our team and the community celebrated the 50th anniversary of Robert Kennedy’s extraordinary speech on the night that Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. We were joined by John Lewis, congressman, author and civil rights pioneer; Kerry Kennedy, the daughter of RFK; and other national and local supporters for reflections on the lasting influence of these two men.
With a focus of “Still We Reach,” the event was held in the Martin Luther King Jr. Park where the historic speech was made. Fundraising efforts surrounding these event supported improvements to the park and the memorial. Browse photos from the event in the slideshow below.
