David Margolick - The Promise and the Dream: The Untold Story of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy

Upcoming Event
Sunday, July 8, 2018 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm

While they came from vastly different backgrounds, Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy were killed just 62 days apart in 1968. Much more than their assassinations link them, and in this vivid look at one of the nation’s defining moments, Margolick, longtime Vanity Fair contributing editor and author of Elizabeth and Hazel, traces the various social and political currents that drew the two leaders together and gives a comprehensive profile of their complicated relationship. Drawing on extensive interviews with people who knew Kennedy and King, Margolick constructs a rich and vivid oral history, telling many previously untold stories from the civil rights era.
