Remembering Kent State 1970
Produced by: Mark Urycki
When thirteen students were shot by Ohio National Guard Troops during a war demonstration on the Kent State University Campus on the first week of May 1970, four young lives were ended and a nation was stunned. More than 30 years later, the world at war is a different place. However, those thirteen seconds in May, 1970 still remain scorched into an Ohio hillside. Through archival tape and interviews, Remembering Kent State tracks the events that led up to the shootings.

Program Credits

Remembering Kent State was produced by Mark Urycki with assistance from John Burnell. It first aired on WKSU-FM, Kent, Ohio.
