Local luminaries turned out the the John F. Kennedy Library in Dorchester as former President Barack Obama accepted the library’s Profile In Courage Award. Obama spoke pointedly about the Trump administration and congressional Republicans who voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act. “I hope that current members of Congress recall that it actually doesn’t take a lot of courage to aid those who are already powerful, already comfortable, already influential,” Obama told the crowd. “But it does require some courage to champion the vulnerable and the sick and the infirm — those who often have no access to the corridors of power.”
