On this day back in 1969, the end of a major transition as the old van curler hotel became the new Schenectady Community College.
The move didn't come without controversy.
Protesters said the college was not serving the entire community -- since there wasn't a black person on the board of trustees.
The Schenectady community action program had proposed the reverend Carl Taylor as a candidate -- but he was never confirmed.
