Brockport Student Government
Black Student Liberation Front
AbstractThe Faculty Senate, the elected leaders of the Brockport Student Government, and the leaders of the Black Student Liberation Front cannot and will not condone or support violence or destruction or defacing of any kind, on the Brockport campus, in the community, or elsewhere in the nation. Furthermore, we urge that the lessons of South Carolina State, where three Black students died on February 7, 1968 and Kent State University, the scene of the death of four White students on May 4, 1970, not be ignored. We do encourage peaceful confrontations while condemning the deliberate creation of confrontation situations which have the potential for violence, Emotionality must not overwhelm rationality.
