Book Talk & Signing
Connecticut author, Phil Goduti returns to Avon Library to talk about his latest book, "RFK and MLK"
Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr., lived parallel lives. Their leadership helped millions of Americans recover from the assassination of John F. Kennedy and inspired hopes for a more peaceful, egalitarian society (which endured well after in their own tragic deaths just five years later). Their rhetoric addressed the pervasive issues of the era—poverty, war and civil rights—and encouraged young people and the disadvantaged throughout the United States and the world. This book examines their shared vision through their speeches, writings and public appearances during the cultural groundshift of 1963 through 1968.
