Inside Higher Ed: Professors organizing for Sept. 8-9 #ScholarStrike and Online Teach-in for Racial Justice

 University of Pennsylvania Professor, Dr. Anthea Butler, was inspired by what she saw when the WNBA, NBA, and numerous other sports leagues saw players strike to bring attention to ongoing issues of racial justice and white supremacist terror in this country when she began organizing a #ScholarStrike earlier this week. Joined by Dr. Kevin Gannon, the two have put together a Google form for academics interested in organizing or earning more about the planned Sept 8-9 action.

Inside Higher Ed has a story up on their site about organizing efforts and you can follow the #ScholarStrike tag on social media to follow developments.
