Ohio school, site of 1964 death, to be demolished

CLEVELAND (AP) — An elementary school that was the site of one of the most tragic moments in Cleveland's civil rights movement soon will be torn down.

The Cleveland school board recently approved a demolition contract for the Stephen E. Howe Elementary School.

The Plain Dealer reports (http://bit.ly/18tnO0r) that the school's construction in 1964 sparked large protests from opponents who considered it an attempt to prevent integration.

The Rev. Bruce Klunder, a 27-year-old minister, was killed on April 7, 1964, as he protested the school's construction by lying down in front of a bulldozer.

The bulldozer's driver backed over Klunder after other protesters laid in front of the machine.

Although people shouted warnings to the driver, investigators agreed with his claim that he didn't hear them because of how loud the bulldozer was.
