Speaking Up for Justice

Then-Attorney General Robert Kennedy speaks to a crowd of civil rights advocates outside the Justice Department on June 14, 1963. Kennedy, who went on to become a Senator and run for president, was a strong supporter of the civil rights movement. As attorney general, he worked to uphold desegregation laws. This month marks the 40th anniversary of his assassination following a victory in the 1968 California Democratic presidential primary.
