Description:
 Robert Francis “Bobby” Kennedy (also known as RFK), was one of seven children in the Kennedy family. As brother of President John F. Kennedy, he served as John’s campaign manager in the election of 1960. As Attorney General from 1961 to 1963, he advocated against organized crime, the Mafia, United States foreign policy with Cuba, and was an ally in the Civil Rights Movement. He served as the United States Junior Senator from New York until his death. In his earlier life, Bobby graduated from Harvard University and the University of Virginia. He served in the United States Naval Reserve from 1944 to 1946 and worked as a correspondent for the Boston Post.

Historian Jim Gibbons will discuss the life of Bobby Kennedy and his tragic death in 1968. He will explain RFK’s strong political presence, and how he, like his brother John, could have also been the President of the United States but was denied that chance due to an assassin’s bullet. REGISTER
