Vigil in Prentice parking lot

Susan Kirkman Zake

A person holds vigil in the Prentice Hall parking lot as they sit where William Schroeder was shot during protests on the Kent State University campus May 4, 1970. The coronavirus forced the university to move the 50th anniversary commemoration events to virtual formats, but a small group of marchers still walked across campus as they have for 50 years since the shooting. Following the march, four people held candles in the spaces where each student fell.
