Director of Security's Resignation Letter, York College

York College Director of Security Winston A. Burrows' resignation letter explains that he is resigning after 17 years of service at York because he cannot become a party to the City University Director of Public Safety's plan to deny students their constitutional right to free speech. The letter details the CUNY chancellor's efforts to prevent students from bringing in the speaker of their choice on Black Solidarity Day.
