Murray Horwitz and Jonathan Estrin’s behind-the-scenes story of a high-stakes political drama that dared the country and its citizens to look into the mirror―and change. Robert Kennedy had an early mistrust of Dr. Martin Luther King and his tactics, but became one of the civil rights movement’s greatest champions. Through Kennedy’s transformative experience, the victories and defeats of an era are retold for a new generation.
