Examines the power of change, the strength of the human spirit, and RFK's enduring vision for our nation's youth. The program profiles the Robert F. Kennedy Children's Action Corps in Massachusetts, an innovative agency founded in honor of the late statesman to successfully rehabilitate children and families of crime, violence, and neglect. Narrated by actor Mandy Patinkin, the presentation connects the life and work of RFK through archival footage, interviews with Kennedy family members, and stories of the young people whose lives have been turned around in his name.
