In a just world, Princeton as we know it does not exist

“No matter how many people go through sensitivity training, no matter how diverse the pool of incoming academics, and no matter how much people are permitted to theorize about the impact of racism on society, Princeton will not become an anti-racist force until it is no longer recognizable as Princeton by those who currently know it.”

“No matter how you slice it, Princeton is highly unaffordable and out of reach for many households, but given the country’s history of racial inequality, this particularly excludes and prices out Black and Latinx households.”

To learn from Black voices and teach comprehensively, the Western HUM Sequence needs to radically change

“With the expansion of student spaces and the acknowledgment that these texts have glorified harmful ideas throughout time, this course can be an essential tool to understanding race, among other complicated issues, the kind of course I desperately need it to be.”
