I use to do major publicity several years ago for the Department of Film and Media Studies, City University of New York. Such as, NPR, CNN, local corporate broadcast affiliates, lots of ethnic media, lots of newspapers. Years ago. Anyone remember “Tombstones for Democracy”? 

Major publicity.

Low Percentage of Black Faculty at CUNY Decried at City Council Hearing

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2018

By Crystal Lewis, The Chief

Though the City University of New York has launched several initiatives over the past few years to diversify faculty among its 25 colleges and graduate-school programs, the number of black employees has remained flat, City Council Members Inez Barron and Bob Holden lamented at a Sept. 27 hearing on the issue.

Though minorities comprised 36 percent of CUNY staff, between fall 2010 and fall 2017, the number of black faculty inched from 933 to 941, making up 12.3 percent of CUNY’s workforce. And though 44 percent of the staff hired during the 2016-2017 school year were non-white, just 15 percent were black.

Tip of the iceberg?
