In May 1970 at Kent State University, four students were killed and nine were wounded during a non-violent protest against the Vietnam War. The tragedy revealed the grave consequences that result when communication collapses. Today, polarized perspectives, divided communities, and school violence are commonplace. As we approach the 50th anniversary of the May 4 tragedy, the Wick Poetry Center, with its partners, has developed this interactive exhibit, encouraging visitors to explore the history of student protest and the timely themes of peace and conflict transformation. www.armedwithourvoices.org
