Two subway stations in Brooklyn will be renamed after Medgar Evers College and the Civil Rights activist for whom the historic black college is named. Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Thursday announced that Franklin Avenue and President Street stations in Crown Heights will formally be renamed this fall, with MTA maps and signage updated this summer. The new stations–Franklin Avenue-Medgar Evers College and President Street-Medgar Evers College–aim to honor the contributions of the institution ahead of its 50th anniversary.
