Candlelight vigil marchers

Susan Kirkman Zake

A small group of marchers walk by lantern and candlelight as they make their way across the Commons at Kent State University on May 3, 2020, to remember the shootings on 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.
