Robert F. Kennedy Book Award
The Robert F. Kennedy Book Award was founded in 1980 with the proceeds from Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr.’s best-selling biography, Robert Kennedy and His Times. The Robert F. Kennedy Book Award has been recognized as one of the most prestigious honors an author can receive.
Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Awards
Launched in 1969 by the reporters who covered Robert Kennedy’s presidential campaign, the prestigious RFK Journalism Awards honor a free and fair press and celebrate media professionals whose work explores issues of human rights, social justice, and the power of individual action. They are among the few awards determined by peers.
