Dr. Canfora will connect the lessons of May 4 to divisions that continue to challenge the American conscience today.
An eye-witness and survivor of the Kent State shootings on May 4, 1970, Chic was one of 24 students indicted by the Ohio Grand Jury, and later exonerated, for activism during a weekend of protests against the Vietnam War. A professor in the School of Journalism at KSU today, Chic is a stalwart advocate for May 4 remembrance and for the importance of connecting the lessons of the anti-war movement to emerging movements today, including Black Lives Matter and March for our Lives.
As a continued precaution to prevent the spread of COVID-19, this event will be held online.
