Letter from Frederick Burkhardt: Seeking President for Community College Seven and Eight
In this letter from Frederick Burkhardt, Chairman of the Committee to Seek Presidents for Community Colleges Seven and Eight, to Walter Pinkston, executive chairman of Bedford-Stuyvesant Youth in Action, Burkhardt suggests a meeting on March 14th between his group and the steering committee of the Bedford Stuyvesant Coalition, which Pinkston represents. The community leader had previously demanded a formal meeting with the university. Though not evident in this letter, tensions between CUNY officials and the Bedford-Stuyvesant community would remain high throughout the development of Medgar Evers College.
