UNC Rescinds Tenure Offer to 1619 Project’s Lead Author

May 21, 2021

Breitbart News reports that Nikole Hannah-Jones, lead writer of the New York Times‘ race-mongering, anti-American “1619 Project,” has lost her tenure offer at the University of North Carolina Hussman School of Journalism and Media following backlash over her “unfactual and biased” work.

“It’s disappointing,” said Susan King, dean of UNC’s Hussman School of Journalism and Media. “It’s not what we wanted and I am afraid it will have a chilling effect.” King had previous described Hannah-Jones’ initial tenured position as “the story of a leader returning to a place that transformed her life and career trajectory.”

The “1619 Project,” which attempted to ground the founding of the United States not in freedom and respect for individual rights but in racism and slavery, has been debunked by hundreds of historians. The James G. Martin Center for Academic Renewal blasted Hannah-Jones as unqualified to be a tenured professor because her work is “unfactual and biased.”

Instead of a tenure offer, the University of North Carolina will offer her a fixed five-year contract as “Professor of the Practice” starting July 1, with the potential to be reviewed for tenure after five years — because a race propagandist discredited by hundreds of other scholars can still get a job in the indoctrination mills of higher education.
