Title

Reading of the Names of Vietnam Dead

Description

At a protest in downtown Lake Forest, students read the names of all 35,000 dead from the war in Vietnam. The city of Lake Forest did not allow protesters to use megaphones, so twenty students read the names in unison over the course of twelve hours.
