Over one-hundred reel-to-reel audio recordings pertaining to the Kent State Shootings on May 4, 1970 and its aftermath are now accessible through the Kent State University Libraries Department of Special Collections and Archives digital repository. Some of the recently digitized collection includes audio recordings of radio-call in forums, a speech from University President Robert I. White the day after the shootings, the Scranton Commission hearings, and a speech made by Dick Gregory at the Kent State Memorial Service in 1971. Full press release
We will highlight audio recordings from this new digital collection throughout the spring semester.
