RFK's Powerful Indiana Speech is Subject of New Documentary

While his speech on April 4, 1968 lasted only six minutes, it is considered by many one of the best impromptu talks ever given by an American politician. As America heard the news of Martin Luther King's murder in Memphis, Robert Kennedy sought to calm citizens in Indianapolis, asking for restraint in a little remembered speech. Although other cities in the USA erupted in riots and arson, Indianapolis remained calm that night. Now a documentary to be released this Spring will focus new attention on RFK's courageous effort in Indianapolis at a time of national shock and horror.
