What should we make of the continued legacy of Woodrow Wilson at Princeton? Our faculty are speaking out & writing: aas21.com/publication/perspect…
As Princeton faculty, we write in support of our students who are currently occupying the President’s office and those who are supporting them across campus. These are difficult times. And there is a palpable sense that, even as we struggle to make Princeton a better institution, students of color, particularly black students, all too often find themselves on the margins of this university. They do not feel a sense of possession of “Old Nassau.” So, they are voicing their frustration and have presented demands to the leadership of our community.Full Story
Each academic year, the Department of African American Studies selects postdoctoral fellows to spend a year at Princeton where they will use their expertise to write about race, as well as, instruct a departmental course for one semester.

The Ferguson is the Future symposium brought together scholars, activists and artists and asked: what stories about power, difference, and belonging fuel the social crises we face today? How does visionary fiction offer us models for creating new possible worlds? Can the combined insights and interventions of artists, activists, and scholars plot a different course forward? The symposium, part of an ongoing collaboration called Black to the Future, served as a space to imagine and create alternative worlds that are more just and representative of humanity.
