A student wearing a U.S. flag as a scarf participates in a Students for a Democratic Society protest on April 8, 1969 at Kent State. About 40 protesters tried to forcefully enter the university administration building but were rebuffed by campus police. The students’ demands included dissolving the ROTC program, the school of law enforcement, and the Bureau of Criminal Investigation. Five students were arrested, seven suspended, and the student group was decertified on campus.
