Town and gown tension
A town torn by the controversy
Businesses and residents leaned on each other to try to recover
Like a lot of college towns, Kent's identity and economy rely heavily on the university. And, like a lot of college towns, there's a tension within that relationship. That tension between Kent city residents and Kent State University students was roiling May 4th, 19-70.... WKSU's Kevin Niedermier looks at how the protests and shootings impacted the town, and how residents recovered.
