Citizens in and around the Kentucky town of Prestonburg are participating in a theatrical re-enactment of a visit by Sen. Robert F. Kennedy to Eastern Kentucky 35 years ago. NPR's Noah Adams talks to the director of the project and one of the re-enactors about the lasting impact of that visit and community reaction to the performance.
