On May 15, 1970, white police opened fire on students in front of a women's dormitory at Jackson State College, a historically black institution in Mississippi, killing two young people and injuring twelve. Frequently linked to the shootings at Kent State University ten days earlier, the violence at Jackson State was routinely misunderstood and largely forgotten by all but the local African American community. This book provides a full account of these shootings and their aftermath, as well as historical amnesia about the incident.
