National, state and local politicians gathered this morning (Tuesday), to commemorate the 50th anniversary of a speech Robert F. Kennedy gave hours after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Hundreds attended to hear speakers including Congressman and prominent civil rights activist John Lewis – who spoke at the March on Washington and worked closely with King.
“He taught us how to live. He taught us how to stand up. To be brave, courageous and bold, and to never give up.”
