In 1968, the National Guard fired into a peaceful protest in Orangeburg, South Carolina, leaving three dead and nearly two dozen others wounded. The protests broke out after a bowling alley — which is now being restored to commemorate the tragedy — refused to desegregate. Center for Creative Partnerships president Ellen Zisholtz and lawyer Bakari Sellers join us.
