May 4 Matters

Help us commemorate May 4, 1970.

More than 1,250 universities and colleges protested against the shootings at Kent State and Jackson State in May 1970. On Monday, May 4 this year, we would be honored if you would post pictures from your institution on your Twitter feeds and Facebook pages using the hashtag #May4Matters. Together, we hope to use social media to show a new generation just how connected college students were in 1970. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the May 4 Visitors Center at 330-672-0354 or email  We are very happy to speak with you.
