In the spring of 1970 growing student protests forced the Ohio State University to close entirely for two weeks - an event unprecedented in the institution’s 100 year history.

Join Bill Shkurti for a discussion of his newest book “The Ohio State University in the Sixties: The Unraveling of the Old Order.
