On April 4, 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was shot and mortally wounded. American cities were engulfed in chaos and fear. Despite the violence raging across the country, Robert F. Kennedy made a campaign appearance in an African-American neighborhood, delivering a moving, extemporaneous plea for peace and reconciliation, a talk that eventually would be regarded as one of the great political speeches of the twentieth century.

message of love and nonviolence

Comments about PBS A Ripple of Hope DVD:

We just watched this documentary on 13.2 KERA World...it is perfect. I remember those times, and this work illuminated the details and great loss to our country...from 1968 to present day...caused by the deaths of these three special people...Martin and John and Bobby. And the power of Bobby's words conveying Martin's message, is a lesson we need to remember.

Truly Outstanding

By perryj43

Comments about PBS A Ripple of Hope DVD:

This captured perfectly the compassionate and gentle spirit of Robert Kennedy, who sought to bring unity to an America deeply divided by violence and prejudice. It also showed his courage in daring to deliver this speech despite the warnings that violence could happen, which was very real. He was determined to do what was right, not convenient.

A Terrific Documentary

By A Dreamer

from Chicago, IL

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS A Ripple of Hope DVD:

This film should be required viewing for all students. It captures a time in history that was pivotal in an era of chaos, war and protest. Despite the oppression and intimidation of the government and special interests, leaders emerged who weren't afraid to put their lives on the line for the advancement of our society. King and Kennedy paid the ultimate sacrifice to keep the message out there that equality, peace and compassion were possible. It seems so long ago.
