Robert Kennedy, Jr. Leads Inner City Youth on Adventurous Hike 

This past July 2023, the son of former Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy and nephew of President John F. Kennedy, the 69-year-old Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., traveled to Watts to take a group of children on a hike in Santa Monica at the Hollyhock Trail, a place in which they have never been. Ironically, in 1968, Robert F. Kennedy visited Watts, California.

“Those were all kids from Compton, from Inglewood, and South Central, Los Angeles, and almost none of them in my experience have ever been up into the Santa Monica Mountains, even though it’s only a couple miles from their home,” explains Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
