Remembering the 45th Anniversary of the Orangeburg Massacre

45 years ago today in Orangeburg, South Carolina, a crowd of African American college students gathered on the campus of South Carolina State University to protest segregation at All Star’s bowling alley, Orangeburg’s only bowling alley. A lot of police arrived on the scene and quickly tensions escalated, and police officers opened fire into the crowd of students. When it was all over three college students were dead and twenty-seven wounded.
Here are couple videos that talk more about the Orangeburg Massacre.
