In May of 1970 events unfolded in a small Ohio town that had lasting effects on the country. 50 years later, the ripple effects are still being felt here in Athens.

John Miley and Chris Tidwell from the Athens Human Rights Festival join WUGA’s Michael Cardin to report on how the tragic events at Kent State, and a few days later at Jackson State in Mississippi, continue to resonate in Athens.
