Westlake Porter Public Library

Dr. Roseann "Chic" Canfora, eyewitness and survivor of the Kent State shooting in 1970, shares her personal experience on one of the darkest days in American history.

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.

***Update: Due to the popularity of the program, we will be moving the event to YouTube Live to allow additional capacity to ensure that everyone that is interested will be able to attend.

The event will go live at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, May 20th, 2020 at youtu.be/E1CRsblI_Bs. You may also visit the Westlake Porter Public Library YouTube page to subscribe and enable notifications. 

If you previously registered for this event, please discard the Zoom meeting information as that will no longer work to be able to view the event.
