CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — Faculty members of a North Carolina university want an explanation for the school’s reported decision to back away from offering a tenured teaching position to journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones. Hannah-Jones’ work on the country’s history of slavery has drawn the ire of conservatives. A report in NC Policy Watch on Wednesday said Hannah-Jones was to be offered a tenured professorship as the Knight Chair in Race and Investigative Journalism at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The story says the school changed its offer to a five-year term as a professor with an option for review. Hannah-Jones is working on The 1619 Project for The New York Times Magazine.
