In 1976 WKU students observed Earth Week April 11th – 17th. A group sprang up calling themselves Energy for Student Awareness. They were concerned and printed a 12 page newsletter. The group screened films, had a food drive for Guatemalans and staged the Earth Awareness Festival outside Downing University Center. The newsletter includes articles regarding The Farm a commune in Summerton, Tennessee, nuclear energy, alternative energy sources, healthy eating, Native American rights and ecological legislation.
Do you remember Earth Awareness Festival? How did you participate? What will you be doing for Earth Day, April 22nd?
This and many other records are available for researchers through our online catalog, KenCat and in the Harrison-Baird Reading Room of the Kentucky Library & Museum Monday – Saturday, 9 – 4.
