on Thu, Feb 13, 2020 at 12:29 PM
Jane Fonda is coming to Kent State University this spring to help commemorator the 50th anniversary of the May 4 shooting on the school’s campus.
The actor/activist, who at 82 is still making headlines for various political demonstrations and her outspoken ways, is just one of the many people coming to the campus the weekend of May 4 to remember the tragic deaths of four KSU students at the hands of the Ohio National Guard 50 years ago.
The schedule of events is as follows:
Sat., May 2 – Discussion on the impact of student activists
Sun., May 3 – The May 4 legacy past and present
Mon., May 4 – The commemoration ceremony
(Find a whole list of events and more details right here.)
Fonda, who was most recently seen presenting at the Oscars in a dress she had worn previously, is set to talk about her life and activism on May 3 for the Presidential Speaker Series. While the speech is free for all to attend, tickets are required.
