WATCH: Documentary Tells UC Story in 1970, 40 Years After the Peaceful Protests That Closed the University
University of Cincinnati graduates recall marches, sit-ins and other reactions across campus following news of shootings at Kent State, Jackson State as well as President Nixon's decision to invade Cambodia. UC's campus closed for several weeks in the spring of 1970, prompting some to leave Cincinnati and miss commencement. The UC Alumni Association invited those grads back four decades later to walk as part of the official graduation ceremony on June 11, 2010.
