As KCET programmer Bohdan Zachary reminds us, those of you looking for ways to remember the late Senator Ted Kennedy, can find a broad range of resources on KCET and PBS:
- A rebroadcast of American Experience: The Kennedys follows the Kennedy story from Jack and Jackie Kennedy's White House through the national tragedies of the assassinations of John and Robert Kennedy. It can be watched on KCET beginning at 8pm, or you can stream it online here.
- The Newshour offers a special tribute to Kennedy, including footage of the tribute to the Senator at the 2008 Democratic National Convention.
- Lastly, Tavis Smiley discusses the legacy of the U.S. Senate's "liberal lion" with Georgia Rep. John Lewis and civil rights attorney Vernon Jordan. The tribute also features clips from Tavis' past conversations with the patriarch of the Kennedy dynasty.
Pixeltown remembers the late Senator Ted Kennedy the only way it can: via embedded viral podcast. Below is a clip in which Kennedy speaks to popular Spanish-language radio personality Piolin in East Los Angeles. He sings in that famous Massachusetts accent, and his last words are words to live by:
We'll try not to let you down, Senator Kennedy. Rest in peace.
