On the surface, Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. were born worlds aparta€•culturally, geographically, racially, financially, and politically. But by the time they were killed within two months of each other in 1968, their worlds had come together.

Commemorating the 50th anniversary of the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. on April 4, 1968, and Robert F. Kennedy on June 6, 1968, Rebel Spirits showcases photographs and artifacts honoring these visionary leaders who irrevocably changed the United States. Sixty images taken by some of the most renowned photojournalists of the eraa€•alongside original correspondence, publications, and ephemeraa€•illustrate the overlapping trajectory of their lives, exploring their deepening tie as well as how their interests expanded beyond civil rights and organized crime to encompass shared concerns for the poor and opposition to the war in Vietnam.
