STATEMENT FROM CHANCELLOR JAMES B. MILLIKEN REGARDING REMOVAL OF CONFEDERATE GENERALS FROM BCC HALL OF FAME

Bronx Community College has announced it is taking steps immediately to remove the busts of Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson from the Hall of Fame for Great Americans on its campus.  This must occur without delay.  There are many great Americans, many of them New Yorkers, worthy of a place of honor in this hall; these two Confederate generals are not among them.
