5/7 It's not just midwesterners who go to state schools. The vast majority of Americans do. And it's not because they lack intelligence or ambition; and it's not a sign that state schools are "inferior" institutions that only the worst of society choose to settle for.

Just finished grading my students "social inequality annotated playlist" final projects, many of which were super thoughtful! They had to choose between 6-8 songs to write about, there are 50 students in my class... their top 5 songs related to social inequality: (a thread)

William Cronon is like "I know a spot" and then explains in captivating detail how, though the spot is hundreds of miles away from where you're standing, you're already there because the spot is an expansive relationship between first and second natures.

I always find the “Africa is better off from the results of colonization” arguments amusing. What do people think happened with African empires & their European counterparts prior to colonization? Perhaps a history lesson is in order. Thread. 1/17

Please stop reading White Fragility. Stop recommending it. Stop sharing it.

Admin in 2020: please be prepared to teach online, in person, both simultaneously, on a moving train, while juggling, in a burning building, under the sea, during a wrestling match with a T-Rex, as a hologram, and riding a unicorn. Also be safe and we value you.

I am happy to announce that I was offered a tenure track Assistant Professor position for the fall 2020. I had to decline the offer. Even though I have no other current offers on the table. 🧵 1/7

One thing that has become incredibly clear to me: the way we teach history in this country is holistically and fundamentally broken. It covers so little & even then does it with a narrative that centers whiteness & manifest destiny above all else https://t.co/LAtBBJrxXg

Who's the "we" here? Historians are doing the work everyone needs - ya'll are wilfully ignoring us. Teachers are doing their best at an impossible job. School boards, parents, voters are the ones responsible for shitty history. Ya'll CHOOSE it because you're scared & we all pay. https://t.co/I8CUC9E2bS

retweet if no one ever covered Juneteenth in your K-12 career consider this message self-retweet

A reminder that the word "sex" was inserted into Title VII by a segregationist Democrat to try and kill the Civil Rights Act. One of the great self-owns of American legislative history. https://t.co/aK1mPl36P0 https://t.co/FAlb6Xxdc5

The word "sex" was indeed introduced into Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act by Howard Smith (D, VA), a segregationist. Smith would have been happy to see the bill sunk, but the story is a bit more complicated. THREAD 1/ https://t.co/scBmzdJSOT

Pro-tip for universities: don’t send out a list of abstract “commitments to social justice” without including a specific timeline with set end dates, a list of who is in charge of carrying out each “commitment,” & your proposed benchmarks of progress toward said “commitments.”

Professors, Graduate School Directors, Dept. Chairs, PIs, Postdocs and white graduate students. Please take a few minutes to read stories from #BlackintheIvory We are telling our stories. True allies should be willing to listen.

Be the mentor you wish you had when you were younger. You needed a 'you' back then & they need you right now.
