COLUMBIA — A panel on the impact of MU student protests during the Vietnam War will be held at 7:30 p.m. Monday at MU.
Vietnam War Protests at Mizzou: The Legacy of the Kent State and Jackson State Killings will explore the significance of the student protests and how they altered MU culture and policy. The event will be held in Room 18 at Tucker Hall.
Panelists include MU professors Paul Wallace and Bill Wickersham, who were both at MU in 1970. Wallace helped organize anti-war protests on campus and in the community, and Wickersham helped represent student protesters at the time.
Other participants include Musa Ilu, a student involved in the anti-apartheid protests at MU in the 1980s; John Betz, an MU student protestor in 1970; and Curtis Edwards, a current MU graduate instructor researching how social movements affect public policy.
An open discussion will follow the panel.
