“Hannah-Jones’ major claim to fame, The 1619 Project, should arguably disqualify her from a teaching position. The project tried to flip American history on its head by arguing that America’s “true founding” came with the arrival of the first slaves in Virginia, not with the Declaration of Independence. Scholars immediately raised objections and the Times has issued a series of stealth corrections tacitly admitting that its project was based on a lie.”
(Tyler O’Neil – PJ Media) The University of North Carolina (UNC) has not offered tenure to Nikole Hannah-Jones, the founder of The New York Times‘s discredited “1619 Project,” even though UNC’s Chapel Hill campus often extends tenure to professors who hold a Knight Chair professorship….
The denial of tenure followed conservative opposition to UNC’s move in hiring Hannah-Jones, whose 1619 Project pushes Marxist critical race theory, divides Americans by race, and arguably helped inspire the Black Lives Matter and antifa riots last summer.
“This is a very political thing,” a member of the UNC-Chapel Hill Board of Trustees told NC Policy Watch about the decision. “The university and the board of trustees and the Board of Governors and the legislature have all been getting pressure since this thing was first announced last month. There have been people writing letters and making calls, for and against. But I will leave it to you which is carrying more weight.”
