In late May or early June 1968, supporters of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy's presidential campaign hold a sign proclaiming him a "Blue-Eyed Soul Brother."

Young voters flocked to Kennedy's message of racial, social and economic equality during the 1968 presidential election. The traditional core of the Democratic Party backed Vice President Hubert Humphrey, who entered the race for the Democratic nomination after President Lyndon Johnson declined to run for reelection.

Fighting racial injustice and advocating the rights of dispossessed and powerless in America were themes that came to mark Robert Kennedy's political legacy.
