Academic freedom and participation in university governance, racial and political issues, the Vietnam War, the military draft, and the Nixon administration in the United States were some of the main issues that led to demonstrations, protests, sit-ins, riots, and ultimately the killing of students at Kent State University in Ohio on May 4, 1970.
