A black, lesbian political science professor claims the New School only hired her as a token of diversity to stem complaints about its mostly white staff, according to a lawsuit.
…The alleged wrongful termination came after years of complaints from Hayes, producer of a 2015 documentary called “Black and Cuba,” about getting worse treatment and fewer resources than white colleagues. She alleges they received “meaningful mentorship, post-hire support… [and] functional equipment.”
She was denied fair pay for a summer course on hip-hop she sought to create and a colleague told her that her work in media wouldn’t be counted toward tenure, Hayes claims in court papers.
She seems fun.
