White nationalist Richard Spencer seeks to speak on Kent State
anniversary, is rejected
TOLEDO, OHIO White nationalist Richard Spencer wont be allowed to
speak at Kent State University on the anniversary of the fatal Vietnam
protest shootings, the school said Thursday, the same day he was
approved to speak at Michigan State University in March.
Spencer, a leading figure in the white nationalist movement, and his
associates have sought to speak at universities across the country,
leading to lawsuits and battles over the fundamental right to free
speech at public universities.
His campus tour organizer asked this week to rent space at Kent
States Student Multicultural Center on May 4 the date when, in
1970, Ohio National Guard members fired into a crowd protesting the
Vietnam War and killed four students. Each year, the school remembers
the shootings with events on campus.
