IVC Academic Senate supports Saddleback Senate’s resolution re renaming Utt Library
Recently, the library has undergone considerable remodeling. Indeed, arguably, when construction is completed (by Fall), it will be a new structure.
Utt was an ultra-right-wing Congressman who failed to vote for the Civil Rights and Voting Rights Acts and who embraced plainly incompetent conspiracy theories. Further, he made some very unfortunate remarks, including one about “barefooted Africans” gathering in Georgia for a U.N. military exercise to take over the U.S. (see here, here, and here).
Today's senate vote was unanimous.
