Subject:   [september17discuss] Re: [BudgetCutsAnnounce] Conference Nov. 5: Young Workers and Organizers Confronting a Failed Economy
 

Hey Isham,

FYI, just so you are aware, a fellow adjunct activist, Ajamu Sankofa, and his immediate supervisor, both African American, were unjustly fired from the Murphy Institute, recently. Beyond the circumstances of their dismissal, CUNY's inability to retain sufficient People of Color in faculty positions is well known.

In solidarity,
Mike
