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.
