After Kent State University antiwar protestors were killed by members of the Ohio National Guard on May 4, 1970, Oberlin responded by hosting ‘‘Kent State in Exile’’ and memorializing the tragedy with a performance of Mozart's Requiem at the National Cathedral.

The Oberlin Alumni Magazine revisits the events on the 50th anniversary in its next issue, and in this online special feature .
