Delta Epiphany: RFK In Mississippi
June 18, 2018 | 7:00 p.m.| $15
Ellen Meacham, author of Delta Epiphany: Robert F. Kennedy in Mississippi, discussed the lasting impact of Robert F. Kennedy’s visit to the Mississippi Delta in 1967, where Kennedy was stunned by the level of poverty and hunger he witnessed. Through the press coverage that followed him, the nation gained new understanding that children were starving within the United States. The program was presented in conjunction with the Museum’s temporary exhibit, Rebel Spirits: Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King.
