LETTER TO THE NEXT GENERATION

Presented at:

University Professor, Independent Filmmaker James Klein focused LETTER TO THE NEXT GENERATION: A LOOK AT KENT STATE 20 YEARS LATER (1990, 78min) on the events that took place at Kent State on May 4, 1970, when 4 students were shot dead.  It was the first time that American Soldiers shot fire upon American students and it has shocked the country.  Klein shows the tentions that are still relevant today between the legacy of that past and the present day reality.  Now 20 years later a different generation is in college and they ask the same question; "What about the future?"
