Abstract:

"On June 8, 1968, amidst a year wracked by division and violence, the casket of assassinated Senator and presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy was transported on a funeral train from New York City to Washington, DC. Hundreds of thousands of people united along the tracks in a spontaneous expression of grief. [The book] presents a photographic reconstruction of this historic train journey from the people's perspective. It offers a counterview to the famous series by photojournalist Paul Fusco, who photographed the crowds from aboard the funeral train. Visual artist Rein Jelle Terpstra has devotedly collected the mourner's snapshots, film stills, and accounts of that muggy summer day. By linking them together along a timeline in the spirit of the people who lined the tracks, this book aims to add a modest new chapter to the American collective memory. This volume includes an essay by poet and art critic David Levi Strauss on photography, remembrance, and the hope that "Bobby" embodied. Aditionally it presents a pull-out section with ten-never before-published Kodachrome slides from Fusco's RFK series, with an essay by writer and researcher Taco Hidde Bakker."--Page 4 of cover.
