BH: Thomas Grace discusses and signs his book: Kent State: Death and Dissent in the Long Sixties

Kent State: Death and Dissent in the Long Sixties
 
May 4, 1970.  The world was rocked by the killing of 4 anti-war student protesters and the wounding of many more by the Ohio National Guard on the campus of Kent State University.  In the days that followed, militant demonstrations erupted across U.S. college campuses, shutting many of them down, including many SUNY campuses.
 
Tom Grace was one of those wounded on that fateful day in Kent, Ohio.  He went on to be a union activist for twenty-five years in the NYS Public Employees Federation, the Buffalo Labor Council, and in various progressive organizations. His union work often took him to Albany.
 
His new book KENT STATE:  Death and Dissent in the Long Sixties places the events of May 4, 1970 in the broader context of the history of working class Ohio in the post WWII era.
 
Tom Grace will be speaking about his book, and be available for book signing after.  This discussion is vital for those of us who lived through these events, and for activists who have come after.
