In 2020, Princeton promised anti-racist action. Five years prior, the Black Justice League had offered a blueprint.

In this interactive feature, The Daily Princetonian recounts how the Black Justice League’s 2015 Nassau Hall sit-in forced a reckoning with racism on campus. We trace the group’s activism to the present day, from the removal of Woodrow Wilson’s name to ongoing calls for an anti-racist curriculum.

Princeton says it avoided COVID-19 furloughs and layoffs. For some contract workers, that isn’t the case.

According to those affected, around 50 Restaurant Associates contract workers have been furloughed since March, and at least five laid off. Feeling forgotten by the University, which has maintained pay and benefits for its direct employees, four furloughed workers shared their experiences with The Daily Princetonian.
