Join us on May 4 at 7:30 p.m. for An Evening with Dan Rather, a Presidential Speaker Series event.

This legendary journalist and news anchor has reported on many monumental events — the Kennedy assassination, Watergate, fall of the Berlin Wall, Tiananmen Square protests and 9/11 attacks — to name just a few. During his speech, he will reflect on his experiences as a journalist, news anchor and multimedia producer, and specifically his extensive, on-the-ground combat coverage of the Vietnam War and the evening of May 4, 1970.

“Dan Rather has been a witness to events that profoundly affected our country, our campus and the world,” said Kent State University President, Beverly Warren. “His unique perspective on the tragic events of May 4, 1970 is of great interest to the university community. His visit directly supports our distinctive mission to prepare students to become engaged world citizens through interactions that spark a passion and purpose to better our society.”

Presidential Speaker Series events are free and open to the public. However, a ticket is required for admission. Two tickets can be requested per email address. For free tickets and additional event information, visit the Presidential Speaker Series website.
