Robert Francis "Bobby" Kennedy    1925-1968

 

As U.S. attorney general

from 1961 to 1964,

Robert F. Kennedy served

as one of the most trusted

advisors to his brother,

President John F. Kennedy,

on matters of civil rights.

 

Although Martin Luther King

boldly criticized the attorney general

and the Department of Justice

for its failure to investigate

civil rights violations,

he wrote Kennedy in 1964

praising him

for his efforts to pass

the Civil Rights Act of 1964:

 

“Your able, courageous

and effective work in guiding

the Civil Rights Act of 1964

through both Houses of Congress

has earned for you

an even warmer spot

in the hearts

of freedom loving people

the world over.

 

I add to theirs

my sincere and heartfelt thanks”

(King, 24 June 1964).
