Election 2016 and Lessons from 1968 featuring Daniel Ellsberg

August 15, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Event: Volunteering

While the nation focuses on this year’s divisive presidential contest, it is worthwhile to look back at RFK’s bridge-building campaign of 1968, which reached its zenith with his win that summer in the California primary.

Former Boston Globe reporter Larry Tye will present on his newly released biography of Bobby Kennedy which traces his transformation from the cold warrior he was at the beginning of his public life to the hot-blooded liberal he’d become by the end.

Featured Guest: Daniel Ellsberg

We are extremely pleased to announce that Daniel Ellsberg, who released the Pentagon Papers and was a target of Nixon’s illegal activities, was a friend of RFK and will be joining this conversation as we look back on 1968.
