Rebel Spirits Opening Program
June 4, 2018 | 6 p.m. Preview | 7 p.m. Program | $15
Rebel Spirits: Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. is based in part on the book The Promise and the Dream by David Margolick, published on April 4, 2018 by RosettaBooks.
In this book, Margolick examines the unique bond between Kennedy and King and the complicated mix of mutual assistance, impatience, wariness, awkwardness, antagonism and admiration that existed between the two.
On June 4, the Museum will host a special evening featuring a preview of the exhibit and a conversation with photojournalist / exhibit curator Lawrence Schiller and journalist / author David Margolick.

Robert Kennedy encountered the stark reality of poverty in America when he visited the Mississippi Delta in the spring of 1967. Hear Ellen Meacham, author of Delta Epiphany: Robert F. Kennedy in Mississippi, as she discusses how that brief visit helped shape Kennedy’s policy views just one year before he ran for president.
A book signing will follow both programs.
