50th Virtual Commemoration

The annual May 4 Commemorations are a time for many people to come together and share their memories and feelings about the events of May 4, 1970. That day left an indelible mark on the lives of many people around the world.

It is impossible to replace the very moving and solemn experience of the physical May 4 Commemoration with something that occurs online. Even though we are physically not able to come together on the day of the 50th anniversary, we wanted to give people a way to come together online and still share in the experience.

We invite you to view a special online commemoration, beginning at noon on Monday, May 4, 2020.

Kent State University remains committed to the ongoing legacy of May 4, 1970, and looks forward to future commemorations and educational initiatives surrounding this important moment in history. It is important that we all take time to remember and honor the lives of Allison Krause, Jeffrey Miller, Sandra Scheuer and William Schroeder, and that we mark the events of that tragic day in 1970, even in the midst of all that is happening in the world due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
