JOIN US for this special Zoom Presentation and Discussion WED 5/13 @ 8PM EST / 5PM PST
This month marks 50 years since the state murder of four Kent State students during a mass protest of the US bombing in Cambodia. Our guest presenter Mike Alewitz was a student anti-war organizer at Kent State and witnessed the shootings. This experience forever shaped Alewitz, who has dedicated his life to people's movements and organizations as an activist, a renowned muralist, teacher, organizer and revolutionary.
Mike will discuss the Kent State shootings, the systemic sanitizing of the most powerful anti-war and social movement in US History, and what lessons we can learn today as we struggle for justice and democratic power in a post-pandemic era of global crisis.
