Statement by Chancellor Albert H. Bowker Announcing the Establishment of a New Community College
Bedford-Stuyvesant community leader, Walter Pinkston, would quickly take exception to the chancellor's announcement however, declaring that the decision to place a "community-oriented" college in the neighborhood was made without any consultation with the community itself. The community's push for participatory role in the new college's creation would persist through the planning and development of Community College No. 7 (later named Medgar Evers College).
