Memo from Al Vann: On Educational Needs and Services –The Bedford-Stuyvesant Coalition
This unaddressed memo is from Al Vann, Chairman of Steering Committee, and appears to be directed towards Frederick Burkhardt, Chairman of the Committee to Seek a President for Community College Seven (Medgar Evers College). Vann requests funds to support the work of the Steering Committee and its work on the Presidential Search Committee. The group of five community-appointed representatives plan to set up space in Bedford-Stuyvesant to carry out their work that includes "firming up the community's mandate: Community Control and a four year institution." It was only because of the community's insistence that the college would open as a four-year institution instead of a two-year school as initially proposed.
