Article "ICC Chapter Initiated Here By RC YMCA"

Description

In this article, the Collegian reports on Melvin Bradshaw's announcement of the creation of an Intercollegiate Christian Council. The council has been formed with Apprentice School, Medical School (white and black nursing students distinguished), Richmond College YMCA, YWCA at Richmond Professional Institute, Union Theological Seminary, Virginia Union University, and Westhampton College. It is a council formed with both "white and colored races." Their goal is to "foster closer communication between colleges" and emphasizes Richmond's "special emphasis upon the race problem" and finding a "happy solution." The R.I.C.C. promised the hosting of future forums and discussions, and a weekly Thursday meeting hosted at the various participating colleges.
