Sara Ackerman Emails: “Derrick Bell, Cornel West, Caitlin Zaloom, Eric Klinenberg, and Lawrence Summers”

From: Sara E Ackerman <sea271@nyu.edu> Date: January 4, 2012 3:20:03 AM EST To: "Undergraduate students minoring, majoring or interested in SCA" <fas-sca-ugstudents@lists.nyu.edu> Cc: "Undergraduate students minoring, majoring or interested in SCA" <fas-sca-ugstudents@lists.nyu.edu> Subject: Derrick Bell, Cornel West, Caitlin Zaloom, Eric Klinenberg, and Lawrence Summers Reply-To: Sara E Ackerman <sea271@nyu.edu>

Derrick Bell's death was a huge loss for both the academic and social justice community, and Time Magazine pays homage to his impressive accomplishments and valuable life, by naming him 'Person of the Year' in 2011: http://www.time.com/time/specials/packages/article/0,28804,2101745_2102136_210282 8,00.html

----->>>>>On a side-note have you ever heard of that mega-university in Cambridge, Mass. called Harvard? Long story short, they had a few disputes between a tenured professor, and a big man on campus, and look what happened in the end: They swapped him: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lawrence_Summers For him: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornel_West And got a PR nightmare---does anyone see the parallels? Or do I have to continue to spell it out for you, as I have been for over 2 months? Look, neither Summers nor West is perfect, but why don't you do a little research

to see who was more deserving of a prominent position at Harvard? Thanks. All the best, Sara
