Memorial forum in memory of Robert F. Kennedy who spoke
in St. James Park in March 1968. On June 5, 1968, three months
after speaking in San Jose, he was shot in the head while walking
through the kitchen of the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles. He
died in the early morning hours of June 6, 1968..
The forum is used by the homeless as a tabletop to make
sandwiches. Several plaques have weathered and rusted to the
point they are unreadable. There is no money, in the great money
bins of San Jose, to maintain monuments in St. James Park.
