“The blow was monumental. Hope-on-the-rise had again been shattered and those in most need of hope crowded the tracks of Bobby’s last train stunned into disbelief and watched that hope trapped in a coffin pass and disappear from their lives,” reads a quote from Paul Fusco on the final page of his critically-acclaimed photo-book RFK Funeral Train. Published thirty years after Fusco captured the aftermath of the assassination of the Democratic, presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy in June 1968, this collection of fifty-three photographs, all shot in color, is a poignant document of a nation in mourning.
