Film Director Oliver Stone to Help Dedicate Kent State University’s May 4 Visitors Center
Film director and producer Oliver Stone will join Kent State University to mark its 43rd annual commemoration of May 4, 1970, with the dedication of the May 4 Visitors Center. The center, which tells the May 4 story set against the political and cultural changes of the 1960s, will be dedicated Saturday, May 4, with other traditional commemorative events beginning Friday, May 3.
From 7:30-9 p.m. on May 4, Stone will share his thoughts on “History and Memory in Film,” drawing on his films that depict ’60s-era events.
