The 1960s and 70s was a period of a great cultural and generational divide – and the shootings at Kent State on May 4th, 1970 were the breaking point. So how can fashion help us understand this time in history? Dr. Sara Hume was here to explain. Dr. Hume is the curator of two exhibits at the Kent State University Museum that focus on the on this era in our country.
Below are the questions Hollie & Alexa asked:
- Kent State is known for its fashion program – and its museum. And, sadly, the May 4th shootings. The 50th Anniversary of that event is coming up. What is the connection between that event and these exhibits?
- Where did the pieces come from for Culture/Counter Culture?
- For the Wearing Justice” exhibit, what did the students and faculty focus on when creating its pieces?
- One of the goals is to foster discussion and dialogue on these issues. And you have some events that help do that…
