RFK Funeral Train

In 1968, a youthful Paul Fusco covered Robert F. Kennedy’s funeral for Look magazine. Fusco boarded the train taking RFK’s body from New York to Washington, photographed the thousands of Americans paying tribute to the senator and presidential candidate along the railway line. This series captures the atmosphere of an era and the population’s affection for a figure offering hope.
