WITNESS tells the story of the events of May 4, 1970, through the eyes of the Kent State students and student journalists who experienced them. The photographs of more than a dozen Kent State students, including alumni such as John Filo, Howard Ruffner and Lafayette Tolliver, offer compelling and courageous eyewitness perspectives that served as an early and essential visual history of May 4. The exhibit is sponsored by the College of Communication and Information (CCI) and is open to the public.
