2018 marks the 50th anniversary of Robert F. Kennedy's assassination, and IF WE FAIL TO DARE explores his influence on issues at the heart of America's identity.

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.

After winning the California presidential primary on June 5, 1958, Robert Kennedy was shot, and died the following day.

IF WE FAIL TO DARE captures the legacy of Kerry's father, former Senator and U.S. Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, through his most resonating quotes, as well as interviews with global leaders in politics, business, technology, and entertainment. A few personal accounts of Robert Kennedy's influence to be included include: Barack Obama, Apple CEO Tim Cook, American labor leader Dolores Huerta, Harry Belafonte, Bill Clinton, Jane Fonda, Bono, George Clooney, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Tony Bennett, and Matt Damon, among others. Through his stance on moral courage, economic and social justice, the role of government, international relations, youth, violence, and support for minority groups, Robert Kennedy remains a hero and inspiration to individuals on the entire range of the political spectrum.
