Rhetorical Analysis of the speech

The exigence of the speech was to inform the population about the death of Martin Luther King and to tell them that just because he died doesn't mean that his ideas need to be forgotten but he would rather have his ideas carried on. The speaker during the video was Robert Kennedy.

The audience of the speech was the entire nation, if they were at the speech of at their homes.
Robert used his words to get his message to the people.
His message wasn't just to inform the people about the death but to also tell them that this won't be the last piece of violence they will see but it doesn't need to tear the country in half, with whites on one side and blacks on the other.
