Robert F. Kennedy

Robert F. Kennedy, 1962

Robert F. Kennedy had scored major victories when he won both the California and South Dakota presidential primaries on June 4, in 1968. He addressed his supporters in Los Angeles shortly after midnight on June 5, and upon leaving the address, he was shot three times; he died on June 6, 1968.

A major proponent of civil rights himself, several public institutions jointly honor Kennedy and civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.
