RFKinEKY's 2004 reenactment of RFK's three and one half hour Hearing of the Senate Subcommittee on Employment, Manpower and Poverty in the Fleming-Neon High School Gym. Twenty eastern Kentuckians gave testimony, including author and lawyer Harry Caudill, Judge Wooton of Leslie County, LKLP director Stafford, miner Cliston Johnson and David Zegeer of Beth -Elkhorn Coal Company. Evarts High School student Tommy Duff testified about school conditions, while other students, some with paper bags over their heads, protested the proposed flooding of Kingdom Come Creek, which would have led to the displacement of the community. RFK in EKY, The Robert F. Kennedy Performance Project, (2004) is a series of public conversations and art activities centered around the real-time, site-specific, intermedia performance recreating Robert Kennedy's 1968 two-day, 200 mile "poverty tour" of south-eastern Kentucky.
