Robert F. Kennedy's Unfinished Odyssey   NEW!

Robert Kennedy's life was cut short by an assassin at age forty-two during the 1968 presidential campaign. This course will examine his life growing up in the Kennedy clan, his work managing JFK's campaigns, his work as a Senate committee counsel investigating Communist influence and labor union racketeering, his service as attorney general, his campaign and service as senator from New York, his eighty-five day campaign for President in 1968, and his assassination and funeral. The course will explore questions of "what if" he had lived and served as president.
