Abstract:

"Everyone remembers the four white students slain at Kent State University in 1970, but most have never heard of the three black students killed in Orangeburg, South Carolina two years earlier ... When police and student demonstrators clashed at a segregated bowling alley, South Carolina officials called in the State Police and National Guard. More than 500 law enforcement officers were soon on the scene and tanks had cordoned off the black schools of South Carolina State College and Clafin University. Suddenly gunshots rang out. When the smoke cleared, three black students lay dead, twenty-eight more were wounded, mostly in the back and side. Though officers claimed self-defense, the FBI found no evidence of any students shooting from State's campus. Interviews with survivors of the Massacre, as well as journalists, the governor and a patrolman who had fired at the students reconstruct the horror of that night. Although the Justice Department charged nine officers with abuse of power, all were acquitted by a South Carolina jury. Forty years later no one has been held accountable"--Container.
