Marchers on Main St.

Susan Kirkman Zake

Candlelight marchers make their way east on Main St. on the edge of the Kent State campus as they commemorate the 50th anniversary of the May 4, 1970 shootings. 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 of the Prentice Hall parking lot where each student fell.
