Pulitzer Prize Journalist to Accept Howard University Offer

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones has turned down a tenure offer from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and will instead accept a faculty position at Howard University, the historically Black institution in Washington, D.C.

She made the announcement Tuesday in an interview on “CBS This Morning,” telling host Gayle King that she “decided to decline the offer of tenure” from UNC, her alma mater.
