Spotlight: Paul Fusco

"On June 6, 1968, in the midst of his campaign to be president of the United States,
Robert F. Kennedy died from an assassin's bullet. Two days later, after a funeral
mass in New York City, his casket was placed on a special train bound for Arlington
National Cemetery. A journey that should have taken hours took all day, as thousands
of Americans lined the 225 miles of track in a spontaneous outpouring of grief.
Paul Fusco was the only journalist on the train, and he ended up taking more
than a thousand pictures from his window."
