One of the featured events at this conference will be a panel discussion featuring Alan Canfora, Tom Grace and Roseann "Chic" Canfora. Both Alan and Tom were wounded on May 4, 1970, and Roseann was a witness and in the Prentice Hall parking lot when members of the Ohio National Guard fired their weapons for 13 seconds at unarmed students. Alan, Tom, and Roseann will share their stories and thoughts about that day and the state of student activism in the nation today.
