Robert Kennedy encountered the stark reality of poverty in America in the spring of 1967 when he visited the Mississippi Delta as part of a Senate subcommittee investigation of poverty programs. The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza will present Ellen Meacham, author of Delta Epiphany: Robert F. Kennedy in Mississippi. Meacham will give thoughtful insights into how that brief visit helped shape Kennedy’s policy views just one year before he ran for president.

Kennedy was stunned by what he found in Mississippi, and the press coverage that followed him exposed the nation to what he had witnessed. What he found in the Mississippi Delta motivated him to work for change in ways that still reverberate today.

A book signing will follow the program.
