Title

Article "US, Asian Violence Stir Protest"

Description

This article discusses University of Richmond students’ concerns regarding the Cambodian crisis and the deaths of four Kent State University students. On May 4, 1970, Ohio National Guard members shot at unarmed college students during a protest against the bombings in Cambodia by the United States military ordered by President Richard Nixon. Four students died. Many students called for a strike as a response to both of these crises. While some faculty believed that prayer would be helpful for the students, others believed that reason and debate would be helpful. Many professors expressed their preference of more “peaceful” tactics as opposed to “senseless violence” in response to these events. Speakers at the rally included Dr. Martin Ryle, freshman Sandy Lorber, Dr. William Smith, Dr. James Hall, Dr. Robert Alley, and RC student government president Woody Traylor.
