||Synopsis: It was April 4, 1968. At 6:01 p.m., across the street from the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, a gunman fired a rifle-and the leader of the civil rights movement, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., lay mortally wounded. As news of King's assassination spread, American cities were engulfed in chaos and fear. Urban areas erupted in riots. Fires burned out of control. Dozens of people were killed. Robert F. Kennedy, meanwhile, was en route to Indianapolis, where at 9 p.m. he was scheduled to make a campaign appearance in an African-American neighborhood. Pressing questions arose: Should Kennedy venture into the heart of the Indianapolis inner city and talk to the potentially volatile crowd gathered in a park? What could he say that would assuage their grief? Should he defy the Indianapolis city officials who ordered him to stay away? Would his life be in danger? Kennedy didn't blink.

A Ripple of Hope (2008)
*** 1/2 (out of 4)
Very good documentary taking a look at the events on April 4, 1968. The
day started off to the tragic events of Martin Luther King, Jr. being
assassinated and the news of this set off violence in countless cities.
While this was going on Robert Kennedy was in Indiana giving a speech
about who whites and blacks need to be more peaceful with one another.
After the speech and hearing the news of King's death, Kennedy then had
to give perhaps the biggest speech of his career. A RIPPLE OF HOPE is
an extremely good documentary that captures an important moment in
history, although this story probably isn't one known by too many.
What's so great about this is that the speech Kennedy would give in
Indianapolis is considered by many to be his greatest and it's also
important to note that no violence broke out in the city. A lot of the
people who were at the event are on hand to discuss the impact this
speech had on them and how Kennedy was showing real courage just by
showing up. The documentary does a very good job at showing how tense
the event was and how Kennedy was in possible danger just by being
there. The actual speech given is shown here and it's certainly one
that you won't forget. The events that would follow with Kennedy's own
assassination are also covered.
