HUFF POST: Nikole Hannah-Jones, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and the creator of The 1619 Project, has turned down UNC's offer of a tenured position. The university had initially declined to make the offer over her controversial writings. Instead, she will teach at Howard University. Members of the UNC Hussman School of Journalism and Media said in a statement:

While disappointed, we are not surprised. We support Ms. Hannah-Jones’s choice. The appalling treatment of one of our nation’s most-decorated journalists by her own alma mater was humiliating, inappropriate, and unjust. We will be frank: it was racist.  Our school highly regards Ms. Hannah-Jones’s work, ability, and achievements. We regret that the top echelons of leadership at UNC-Chapel Hill failed to follow established processes, did not conduct themselves professionally and transparently, and created a crisis that shamed our institution, all because of Ms Hannah-Jones’s honest accounting of America’s racial history. It is understandable why Ms. Hannah-Jones would take her brilliance elsewhere.
