Dr. Doris Bazzini composed four songs for a play written by Dr. Ray Miller of the Department of Theatre and Dance, describing events surrounding the Kent State shootings as we near its 50th anniversary. The shootings took place during a peaceful student protest of the Vietnam War, when soldiers from the Ohio National Guard opened fire into the crowd. In 13 seconds, four students were killed and nine others wounded, leaving an entire nation to cope with the tragedy. Dr. Ray Miller was a student at Kent State University at the time and witnessed the event.
Dr Miller's play, "Kent State: Then, and Again", will be streamed live April 21-25. Click here for more information.
