Kent State Shootings and their Aftermath:Through the Media's Lens

On October 15, 1969, approximately 3,500 individuals marched through Kent State University and into downtown Kent, to support the National Moratorium on the Vietnam War. Protesters sung “Give Peace a Chance,” while holding banners and signs that read, “Stop the War Machine,” and “Bring All the Troops Home.”
