Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated 50 years ago this week.

US Historian Jennifer Frost joins Graeme Hill to talk the life of Robert Kennedy and all the “what ifs”.

Kennedy’s death was only two months after Martin Luther King’s assassination.

Robert was always in the shadows behind his brother JFK, but after Martin Luther King’s death he spoke to the community about the importance of compassion and the accepting of all colours.

Kennedy also campaigned for the youth vote, and tried to get them a voice.
