May Day remembered

Students, alumni, and New Haven residents gathered in the JE Art Gallery Thursday for a talk on the 1970 May Day protests. Sam Chauncey ’57 and Thomas Strong ’67MFA presented large prints of photos from their book showing both the highs and lows of the weekend. Current students were familiar with the jubilant scenes of parties on the Green, but could barely recognize York Street with the National Guard marching through.
