On April 4, 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was shot and mortally wounded. American cities were engulfed in chaos and fear. Despite the violence raging across the country, Robert F. Kennedy made a campaign appearance in an African-American neighborhood, delivering a moving, extemporaneous plea for peace and reconciliation, a talk that eventually would be regarded as one of the great political speeches of the twentieth century.
