"For [UNC-CH], Tuesday’s announcement from Howard could provoke a bitter recrimination."
--"Nikole Hannah-Jones To Join Howard University Faculty," headline this morning in the WashPost
Hannah-Jones got UNC in a headlock and squeezed until they cried uncle and gave her tenure. Then she chose Howard University. Snap! That's a public punishment of our leading university that's gonna leave a mark. She promised that she wouldn't come to UNC unless she was granted tenure. She didn't say she wouldn't come even if she was granted tenure. Some academics in the School of Journalism may feel jerked around. Some Board of Trustees members will be cursing into their coffee cups. Meanwhile, student activists do not sleep.
I'm sorry she won't be stirring it up in North Carolina.
