Though this event took place before I was born and during the year 1970, it was clearly a continuity of the turbulent 60s. Kent State University is marking the 40th anniversary of the May 4, 1970 shootings with a new walking tour — with audio narrated by civil rights leader Julian Bond — of seven stops that relate to the tragedy. The university is also honoring the placement of the site on the National Register of Historic Places. We recently discussed this in my U.S. History class; if I am right, four students were killed, nine wounded, and one paralysed by the Ohio National Guard. Students were protesting the American invasion of Cambodia during the Nixon administration.
