Bobby Kennedy For President
Bobby Kennedy’s passion and vision helped his brother John get elected President, sparked a country’s conscience, guided the nation through terrifying crises, and inspired a generation.
He was Attorney General, a United States Senator, and a candidate for President. RFK also riled the establishment as he sharpened his political acumen, and challenged America to become the best version of itself. Bobby Kennedy For President examines the impact of the “Bobby Phenomenon,” and the continuing influence of one of the United States most iconic figures who’s life was tragically cut short when he was assassinated on June 6, 1968 at age 42.
With new interviews with RFK confidantes and staffers, including Harry Belafonte, Rep. John Lewis, Rep. Neil Gallagher, Dolores Huerta, Ambassador William Vanden Heuvel, Paul Schrade, Franklin A. Thomas, William Arnone, Marian Wright Edelman and Peter Edelman -- Porter reveals anew what America gained and what it lost in the life, vision, politics, and enduring legacy of Bobby Kennedy.
