Lonnie Wilson: And the tension melted, May 21, 1969. In: Oakland Tribune.Tensions between soldiers and demonstrators melted away yesterday when this pretty blonde girl rushed forward toward one National Guardsman. At first he tried to push her away, but she persisted and threw her arms around him in an emotional embrace. Soon both sides were smiling and a couple of hours later demonstrators drifted away the area near the home of Chancellor Roger Heyns.Via The Oakland Tribune Collection, the Oakland Museum of California
