By Vinny Rossi
These photos were all provided by Ed and Carol Albanesi. Thanks so very much!
In 1960, following the election of his brother to the presidency, Robert Kennedy was appointed U.S. attorney general. His tenure in that office was marked by active enforcement of civil rights laws. He resigned his cabinet post in 1964 and in the same year was elected U.S. Senator from New York. As Senator, Kennedy showed himself to be particularly concerned with the problems of urban ghettos and of the poor and disadvantaged.
These photos are from the late Senator Kennedy's campaign trip to Long Beach in 1964.
