About this collection

Sen. Robert F. Kennedy declared his candidacy for president on March 16, 1968. In April and early May, he made many campaign stops in Indiana. On May 4, he visited several Indianapolis neighborhoods, including one at 21st and Harding streets depicted in these photos taken by Katherine “Katie” Palmer. This visit was exactly midway between the dates of two tragic events: On April 4, Kennedy spoke to an Indianapolis crowd that had just learned of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and Kennedy was killed a month later on June 5.
