KERRY KENNEDY grew up with a political titan as the head of her household. Known for his staunch advocacy for civil rights, education, justice, and peace transcended race, class, and creed, her father, Robert Kennedy, was expected to run against Republican Richard Nixon in the 1968 presidential election and to continue in the footsteps of his late brother John F. Kennedy to become President.
