Riots, Protests and National Guard: Then and Now


There was an interesting juxtaposition on television last evening. On PBS the series The Day the ’60s Died premiered with an episode focused on the shootings at Kent State in 1970. Lots of news film, mostly black and white, of the events of that day and that era. Meanwhile over on CNN the current situation in Baltimore looked strikingly similar, except of course now it’s all in color. Have we not advanced at all?
