Kent State & May 4: Michael Roberts, Journalist, Recalls First-Hand Experience of Tragedy


On this 40th anniversary of the tragedy at Kent State, you'll read plenty about what happened that day and how it's still effecting Kent State students, survivors, families and graduates to this day. You might even read some of that stuff in this fine newspaper, like the cover story written by Rick Perloff this week.

There's plenty of other good stuff out there too, like this piece by Peter Chakerian with Michael Roberts, former PD and Cleveland Magazine honcho and sometimes contributor to Scene.

Roberts was there, Roberts wrote a book about it, and Roberts is still one sharp guy with a lot to say about the subject.
