The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) board of trustees has voted to grant tenure to Nikole Hannah-Jones of the America-hating “1619 Project.”
Hannah-Jones won both the MacArthur Fellowship, which is called a “Genius Grant,” and a Pulitzer Prize for the work she did on the demonstrably false, far-left 1619 Project sponsored by The New York Times Magazine.
The 1619 Project is a major initiative of critical race theory which argues America was not founded in 1776, but rather in 1619, when the first African slaves arrived in the British colonies.
In Wednesday’s vote of 9-4, following a closed session, the UNC board gave Hannah-Jones tenure. Back in April, Hannah-Jones was appointed Knight Chair in Race and Investigative Journalism for UNC’s Hussman School of Journalism and Media. According to Hannah-Jones’s legal team, she had been “repeatedly told that the position would come with a full tenured professorship.” Hannah-Jones was not initially offered tenure, however, but rather a “five-year fixed term with eligibility for tenure review at the end.”
