In the wake of John F. Kennedy's assassination, Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr.'s rhetoric helped to guide the nation through issues such poverty, war and civil rights. Goduti Jr., PhD candidate at UCONN, will look at how their speeches and actions shaped the decade. Their leadership helped the nation recover from the loss of a president and paved the way for change that led into the 21st century.
Copies of Goduti's book RFK and MLK: Visions of Hope, 1963-1968 will be available for purchase and signing from Book Club On the Go.
