RFK: Speech for Humanity

Bobby Kennedy’s Day of Affirmation speech set to the soundtrack of the Social Network & Gladiator. The Day of Affirmation speech was a speech given by Robert F. Kennedy to National Union of South African Students members at the University of Cape Town, South Africa, on June 6, 1966. Kennedy, who was then a U.S. Senator from New York, gave the speech two years before his 1968 presidential campaign, which came to an end when Kennedy was assassinated on June 5, 1968 in Los Angeles.

Considered to be one of his greatest speeches, the Day of Affirmation Address, coupled with Ted Kennedy’s eulogy for Bobby, offer precious words of wisdom decades after their initial utterance.
