Last night, the US Navy Memorial played host to the DC Premiere of the new Netflix docuseries “Bobby Kennedy for President”. Directed by Georgetown alum Dawn Porter, the four-part series brings together rare and never-before-seen archival footage as it reveals what America gained and what it lost in the life, vision, politics, and enduring legacy of Bobby Kennedy. The series comes as its marks the 50th anniversary of Kennedy’s presidential campaign, which ended with his assassination on June 6, 1968.
Before the premiere event, I sat down with Dawn to discuss the wonderful moving series that debuted on Netflix – April 27th.
