Robert F. Kennedy

Robert F. Kennedy

After learning of Martin Luther Kings's death, Robert F. Kennedy delivered a speech in the "heart of the African-American Ghetto of Indianapolis," informing the people of his death and attempting to keep the peace, as well. Indianapolis was one of the few cities that did not riot that night, thanks in part to Robert F. Kennedy's speech.
