Indy airport to commemorate the 50th anniversary of RFK speech

INDIANAPOLIS – the Indianapolis International Airport, is the hosting of exhibitions in honor of Robert F. Kennedy, who gave an iconic speech in the city after the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr.

Visitors to the airport can view pictures and the stories of the people who were present at the Kennedy-April 4, 1968, speech, which was given in a predominantly poor African-American neighbourhood.

They also read a transcript of the speech, which is credited with preventing riots in Indianapolis after King’s assassination, while other AMERICAN cities burned in the unrest. Kennedy himself murdered months later.

The exhibitions commemorate the 50th anniversary of his notes, and it will be until the beginning of April.
