“her course appears focused on the initiative she led at the New York Times”
Remember when there was that huge controversy because UNC-Chapel Hill didn’t offer her tenure at first? It looks like they made the right choice.
The College Fix reports:
Nikole Hannah-Jones will teach one course this fall as a tenured professor
Critical race theory and journalism scholar Nikole Hannah-Jones will teach one course this fall as a tenured professor at Howard University.
Called “The 1619 Project,” her course appears focused on the initiative she led at the New York Times in 2019 to retell the story of American history through the lens of slavery.
She will teach the three-credit course with Deanna Hayden, a doctoral student at Howard.
The College Fix filtered the other departments in the university’s course catalog to see if Hannah-Jones is teaching another department’s course in the fall, but she is not.
Last year, she rejected an offer for a tenured position at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
The Fix reached out to Hannah-Jones’ spokesperson, Charles Yao, via email on August 22, but The Fix received no response. Hannah-Jones posted a screenshot of The Fix’s email to Twitter on August 22.
“You know you that bish when you cause all this conversation,” the professor wrote, in response to a College Fix media request from a student reporter.
