Description: These notes describe a March 14, 1963 meeting between Woman's College of the University of North Carolina (WCUNC) Chancellor Otis Singletary, dean of students Katherine Taylor, and the student government president with local business owner Mr. Street regarding the desegregation of his business. Street was the operator of the Cinema Theatre and the Town and College Restaurant, two establishments located at "The Corner", adjacent to the Woman's College campus. Mr. Street stated that he would be willing to desegregate the establishment if desegregation could be limited to WCUNC students; he further suggested that his business did not depend on the WCUNC community for survival.
