this is short

lately i have been having talks with faculty and students in my department who hope to sustain the amount of faculty who are from diverse backgrounds. in our talks, people have praised the idea. undertaking the idea of the eslanda robeson when she suggested “I have reluctantly come to the conclusion that everything now is political: the price we pay for steak, if we can afford steak….. All is political, make no mistake about that. So me, I’m political,” i have become more and more political about the way i handle my business.

what are your thoughts about the sustainability of faculty members of color at your institutions? is a political issue in your department?
