Description: In this March 28, 1963 letter to Chancellor Otis Singletary of the Woman's College of the University of North Carolina (WCUNC), Richard G. Apple informs the chancellor of his decision not to his decision not to desegregate his restaurant, located adjacent to the Woman's College campus. The reason Apple provides for this decision is to maintain identical policies for all four of his establishments in the city; he states that he might "consider" integration if it could be limited to the Tate Street location and to WCUNC students only.
