On April 4, 1968, Robert F. Kennedy visited South Bend, Muncie, and Indianapolis as part of his campaign to win the 1968 Democratic presidential nomination. While traveling from Muncie to Indianapolis, Kennedy was informed of the assassination of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. and delivered an impassioned plea for peace to a predominantly African American audience in Indianapolis. Ray E. Boomhower, author of Robert F. Kennedy and the 1968 Indiana Primary, will honor the 50th anniversary of this series of events with a public talk.
