Kent State University alumna Roseann “Chic” Canfora, Ph.D.,
eyewitness and survivor of the May 4 shootings
will share reflections and observations on the approaching 50th commemoration and will field questions on
April 20 at 2:00 p.m. EDT
on the university's Facebook page.
The eighth in a series of Facebook Live sessions, Dr. Canfora invites students, faculty, staff and others to join and participate. She is a stalwart advocate for May 4 remembrance and for the importance of connecting the lessons of the anti-war movement to emerging movements today, including Black Lives Matter and March for Our Lives.
A Kent 25 defendant, Dr. Canfora was one of 24 students indicted by the Ohio Grand Jury, and later exonerated, for activism during a weekend of protests against the Vietnam War. She earned three degrees, including a Ph.D. at Kent State, where she teaches in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication.
Look for an upcoming Facebook Live session with Barbara Broome, Ph.D., RN, FAAN, dean and Henderson Memorial Endowed Chair of the College of Nursing, on April 22 at 11 a.m.
For those unable to log in during the live sessions, a recording of each interview will be available for viewing on the university’s Facebook page.
