Synopsis by Nathan Southern
The Emmy Award-winning A&E cable series Biography tackles one of the most complex and multifaceted political figures of our time, the late Robert F. Kennedy, in Biography: Robert F. Kennedy. Weaving together exclusive interviews with R.F.K.'s friends and associates as well as rare archival footage, this program explores the promise that R.F.K. exuded as a young man, his deft handling of the Civil Rights Movement and Cuban Missile Crisis, his unofficial fosterhood of nephew John F. Kennedy Jr. and niece Caroline Kennedy following the death of his late brother, and -- ultimately -- the fateful meeting with Sirhan Sirhan in a hotel kitchen that extinguished his young life and the promise he embodied for the United States of America.
