We are writing as editors and board members of Critical Ethnic Studies to express our adamant support for Dr. Marc Lamont Hill, a member of our journal's editorial board. For offering an ethical and considered position on Palestinian equality, Marc Lamont Hill is facing attempts to malign his scholarship and calls to dissolve his tenured position at Temple University. These attacks are wholly inappropriate. We call upon academic communities and faculty associations to uphold the freedoms of all scholars to make critiques of state violence, particularly scholars who are Black, Palestinian, Indigenous, queer and trans (never mutually exclusive groups). We stand with Marc Lamont Hill and affirm that scholars have important responsibilities to analyze and speak out against injustice.
