The window was inside Calhoun College, which was named for former Vice President John C. Calhoun, an ardent defender of slavery during the 19th century.

Yale University officials have asked the state not to pursue criminal charges against a former worker who destroyed a stained-glass window depicting slaves in a cotton field last month. Corey Menafee, a 38-year-old former dining hall employee who is black, told reporters outside of New Haven Superior Court on Tuesday that he probably should not have broken the window last month, but found the image disturbing.

“An image was brought to my attention and I destroyed that image. I probably shouldn’t have, but I did,” he said. "It was a disturbing image of what appeared to be two slaves -- a male and a female -- carrying baskets to a cotton field."
The window was inside Calhoun College, which was named for former Vice President John C. Calhoun, an ardent defender of slavery during the 19th century. The college's name has been the subject of protests by students who want it changed.
