This week in class, we’re reading "RFK’s Speech Following the Death of MLK" by Senator Robert F. Kennedy.

“RFK’s Speech Following the Death of MLK” is a speech that encourages the nation to unite and heal following Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s assassination using strong rhetorical techniques.
