‘Ripple of Hope’ RFK Exhibit to Open at JFK Hyannis Museum

HYANNIS – A special exhibit commemorating the life and legacy of Robert F. Kennedy opens Monday at the John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum.

“RFK: Ripple of Hope,” which was assembled in collaboration with the RFK Human Rights Foundation, begins with Robert’s early years, including his time on Cape Cod.

But the focal point covers his time serving as U.S. Attorney General and a U.S. Senator, culminating with his presidential campaign.

“The theme ‘Ripple of Hope’ comes from his most famous and powerful speech delivered in Cape Town, South Africa,” said Rebecca Pierce-Merrick, the curator of the JFK Hyannis Museum.

“It’s a fitting title for our exhibit as well because that’s exactly what his life of public service created – a ripple of hope that continues to reverberate through the generations since his passing.”

An opening reception will be held Monday, July 2 at 10:30 a.m. A Museum Foundation Speaker Series event featuring Kerry Kennedy will be held at 7 p.m. the same evening. Tickets for that event are still available and can be purchased at jfkhyannismuseum.org.

The exhibit will run through 2019.
