After significant consultation with CUNY Chancellor J.B. Milliken, we are moving forward with the removal of the busts of Confederate Generals Robert Edward Lee and Thomas Jonathan “Stonewall” Jackson. The attached press release was issued this afternoon and sent to our local elected officials and to inquiring news outlets. We hope that this change will better reflect the values and beliefs of CUNY and BCC and allow for continued dialogue about building an inclusive Hall of Fame moving forward.
