Survivor of Kent State shootings to speak Wednesday

Posted by Leslie Pickering on

Tom Grace, one of 13 unarmed anti-Vietnam War protesters shot by National Guardsmen at Ohio’s Kent State University in May 1970, will recall the events of that tragic day at 7 p.m. Wednesday in Burning Books, 420 Connecticut St.

Grace, who lives in Amherst, will talk about his experience being wounded at the campus protest, in which four people were killed in a 13-second barrage of bullets that shocked the nation and triggered a massive student strike.

Grace also will be showing the new documentary “Fire in the Heartland,” about the Kent State shootings. For more information, call 881-0791.
