One Thousand Pictures: RFK's Last Journey

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

In the early afternoon of 8 June 1968, following a funeral mass in St Patrick's Cathedral, New York, the Kennedy family and their guests boarded a train at Penn Station to take the body of Robert F Kennedy, assassinated two days before, back to Washington to bury him next to his brother, John.

What had not been anticipated were the thousands of people who lined the route to pay their respects to the Senator and who were captured by the camera of Magnum photographer Paul Fusco, who was on the train.

One Thousand Pictures tells the story of that journey and of America at the time through some of the people who were there and in the pictures, which in turn provide an extraordinary portrait of 1960's America.
