Robert F. Kennedy 'Ripple of Hope' Speech
 
02:09
A small fragment of Robert F. Kennedy's - Day of Affirmation Address in South Africa (also known as 'Ripple of Hope' speech). Soundtrack: Hans Zimmer / "Interstellar" movie main theme " It is a revolutionary world that we all live in, and thus, as I have said in Latin America and in Asia, and in Europe and in my own country the United States, it is the young people who must take the lead. Thus you, and your young compatriots everywhere, have had thrust upon you a greater burden of responsibility than any generation that has ever lived. "There is," said an Italian philosopher, "nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things." Yet this is the measure of the task of your generation, and the road is strewn with many dangers. First, is the danger of futility: the belief there is nothing one man or one woman can do against the enormous array of the world's ills-against misery against ignorance or injustice and violence. Yet many of the world's great movements, of thought and action, have flowed from the work of a single man. A young monk began the Protestant Reformation, a young general extended an empire from Macedonia to the borders of the earth, and a young woman reclaimed the territory of France. It was a young Italian explorer who discovered the New World, and the thirty-two-year-old Thomas Jefferson who proclaimed that all men are created equal. "Give me a place to stand," said Archimedes, "and I will move the world." These men moved the world, and so can we all. Few will have the greatness to bend history , but each of us can work to change a small portion of the events, and in the total of all those acts will be written in the history of this generation." ================================================================================= You can find the whole speech here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6o57dEuXj-Y&t=1589s

RFK In the Land of Apartheid: A Ripple Of Hope
 
02:30
Available on DVD: http://www.videoproject.com/rfkinlaofapr.html Featuring never before seen archival footage and interviews, filmmakers Larry Shore and Tami Gold tell the little-known story of Senator Robert Kennedy's influential June 1966 visit to South Africa during the worst years of Apartheid. The film is a unique portrait of Senator Kennedy in action at an important moment in American and South African history. Robert Kennedy's visit gave South African opponents of Apartheid -- both black and white -- hope and courage to challenge the apartheid system at a time when they felt isolated and few in the outside world knew what was happening in South Africa. His visit also highlighted the parallels in the fight against racism in South Africa and in the United States, where Martin Luther King Jr., had linked the struggle for Civil Rights with the fight against Apartheid. RFK IN THE LAND OF APARTHEID follows Kennedy in South Africa during the five-day visit, including his famous "Day of Affirmation" speech at the University of Cape Town on June 6, 1966. The speech is generally considered to be the greatest speech of Robert Kennedy's career. One paragraph, featuring the "ripple of hope", is among the most quoted in American politics and appears on Kennedy's gravesite at Arlington National Cemetery: "It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance." Another high point of the film is Kennedy's meeting with one of the unknown giants of South African and African history -- the banned President of the African National Congress and Nobel Peace Prize winner, Chief Albert Luthuli, who was living under house arrest in a remote rural area. The film includes interviews with those that accompanied or met with Kennedy on his trip, as well as with Edward Kennedy, and an original soundtrack by American musician Jason Moran. Robert Kennedy's actions and words in South Africa were important at the time for one other reason -- it publicly challenged the dominant Cold War ideology that anti-Communism should be the only basis for determining American foreign policy, even if it meant supporting repressive regimes. Kennedy demonstrated how it was possible to promote human rights and democracy in an undemocratic society, while engaging in an honest discourse on America's own historical problems and successes. RFK IN THE LAND OF APARTHEID tells an unusual story through the words and actions of an American politician whose legacy continues to inspire the cause of human rights around the world.

I am a Ripple of Hope: Speak Truth to Power around the world
 
05:21
Speak Truth To Power, a project of the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights, is a multi-faceted global initiative that uses the experiences of courageous defenders from around the world to educate students and others about human rights, and urge them to take action. Issues range from slavery and environmental activism to religious self-determination and political participation. The project began as a book written by Kerry Kennedy (since translated into six languages, with more coming) and has been adapted into a dramatic production by Ariel Dorfman. The portraits of the human rights defenders by the late Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Eddie Adams featured in the book have been made into an exhibition that has toured over twenty cities in the United States after its initial launch at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. It is now displayed on four continents. The Speak Truth To Power human rights education curriculum has been disseminated to hundreds of thousands of students in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the United States. In collaboration with Amnesty International, the U.S. version of the curriculum has been widely distributed throughout North America. An updated U.S., online-curriculum, launched in December 2010, in partnership with New York State United Teachers (NYSUT), includes seventeen teacher-developed lesson plans for students in grades 6-12. In addition, the international interest in the curriculum continues to grow and to offer new partnership opportunities with donors and governments. Most recently, the curriculum was launched in Hong Kong and Cambodia in February 2011. A model country for this educational initiative is Italy, where the 12-week course has been taught to over 250,000 students. The human rights education curriculum is also being taught in South Africa, Romania, and Nicaragua. Hosted by President Bill Clinton, the play, Speak Truth To Power: Voices from Beyond the Dark, premiered at the Kennedy Center in the year 2000. A one-hour video was broadcast on PBS as part of its Great Performances series. Many of America's greatest actors have performed in the play, including: Alec Baldwin, Matthew Broderick, Glenn Close, Woody Harrelson, Kevin Kline, John Malkovich, Sean Penn, Vanessa Redgrave, Martin Sheen, Meryl Streep, Sigourney Weaver, and more. The play has been produced across the United States and performed by major actors in Barcelona, Cape Town, Florence, Geneva, Helsinki, Hong Kong, Johannesburg, Madrid, Mantua, Milan, Phnom Penh, Rome, Seoul, and Sydney. Notable was a performance in Doha, Qatar, transmitted live on Al Jazeera and read by ten of the most celebrated actors and singers of the Arab world. It has also been performed by schoolchildren, college students, local heroes and even prisoners (in a major theatre in Bucharest, after rehearsals in the penitentiary). Future productions are planned for Paris, Istanbul, Zimbabwe, and Mexico. Speak Truth To Power encourages governments, NGOs, major foundations, and individuals to support human rights, and brings much-needed attention to continuing abuses. But perhaps its most lasting effect will be to demonstrate the capacity of each individual to create change.

Robert F. Kennedy's passion and vision helped his brother John get elected president, sparked a country's conscience, guided the nation through terrifying crises, and inspired a generation. In the decade before his assassination at age 42, as Attorney General, a United States Senator and a candidate for President, RFK also riled the establishment as he sharpened his political acumen, and challenged America to become the best version of itself. Told through rare and never-before-seen footage, director Dawn Porter's four-part documentary series "Bobby Kennedy for President" examines the "Bobby Phenomenon" of the 1960s and the continuing influence of the man many see as the greatest loss of a troubling and turbulent era.

LBJ vs. RFK: Lyndon Johnson, Robert Kennedy, and the Feud that Defined a Decade (1998)
 
01:11:56
Nine months after President John F. Kennedy's assassination, Robert Kennedy left the Cabinet to run for a seat in the U.S. Senate, representing New York. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0393318559/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0393318559&linkCode=as2&tag=doc06-20&linkId=f3f17ca30090615dad58ee3946255651 President Johnson and Bobby were often at severe odds with each other, both politically and personally, yet Johnson gave considerable support to Bobby's campaign, as he was later to recall in his memoir of the White House years. His opponent in the 1964 race was Republican incumbent Kenneth Keating, who attempted to portray Kennedy as an arrogant carpetbagger. Kennedy emerged victorious in the November election, helped in part by Johnson's huge victory margin in New York. During the campaign he visited the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, seeking his blessing and endorsement.[78] In 1965, Bobby became the first person to summit Mount Kennedy.[42] At the time it was the highest mountain in Canada that had not yet been climbed. It was named in honor of his brother Jack after his assassination. In June 1966, Kennedy visited apartheid-era South Africa accompanied by his wife, Ethel Kennedy, and a small number of aides. At the University of Cape Town he delivered the Annual Day of Affirmation speech. A quote from this address appears on his memorial at Arlington National Cemetery. ("Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope ...") During his years as a senator, Kennedy also helped to start a successful redevelopment project in poverty-stricken Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn in New York City, visited the Mississippi Delta as a member of the Senate committee reviewing the effectiveness of 'War on Poverty' programs and, reversing his prior stance, called for a halt in further escalation of the Vietnam War. As Senator, Kennedy endeared himself to African Americans, and other minorities such as Native Americans and immigrant groups. He spoke forcefully in favor of what he called the "disaffected", the impoverished, and "the excluded", thereby aligning himself with leaders of the civil rights struggle and social justice campaigners, leading the Democratic party in a pursuit of a more aggressive agenda to eliminate perceived discrimination on all levels. Kennedy supported desegregation busing, integration of all public facilities, the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and anti-poverty social programs to increase education, offer opportunities for employment, and provide health care for African Americans. The administration of President Kennedy had backed U.S. involvement in Southeast Asia and other parts of the world in the frame of the Cold War. While Robert Kennedy vigorously supported President Kennedy's earlier efforts, like his brother he never publicly advocated commitment of ground troops. Senator Kennedy had cautioned President Johnson against commitment of U.S. ground troops as early as 1965, but Lyndon Johnson chose to commit ground troops on recommendation of the rest of President Kennedy's still intact staff of advisers. Robert Kennedy did not strongly advocate withdrawal from Vietnam until 1967, within a week of Martin Luther King taking the same public stand. Consistent with President Kennedy's Alliance for Progress, Robert Kennedy placed increasing emphasis on human rights as a central focus of U.S. foreign policy. In 1968, President Johnson began to run for reelection. In January 1968, faced with what was widely considered an unrealistic race against an incumbent President, Senator Kennedy stated he would not seek the presidency.[80] After the Tet Offensive in Vietnam, in early February 1968, Kennedy received a letter from writer Pete Hamill, that said that poor people kept pictures of President Kennedy on their walls and that Robert Kennedy had an "obligation of staying true to whatever it was that put those pictures on those walls".[81] Kennedy traveled to Delano, California, to meet with civil rights activist César Chávez who was on a twenty-five day hunger strike showing his commitment to nonviolence.[82] It was at his visit in California where Kennedy decided he would challenge Johnson for the presidency, telling his former DOJ press secretary Edwin Guthman, that his first step was to get little-known Senator Eugene McCarthy of Minnesota to withdraw from the presidential race. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RFK
