Boston University Announces ‘Inquiry’ Into Ibram X. Kendi’s ‘Antiracist’ Center
Boston University announced Wednesday that it would conduct an “inquiry” into Dr. Ibram X. Kendi’s Center for Antiracist Research amid complaints about its culture.
The inquiry will be a broader version of a previous “examination,” looking at the center’s grant management practices, a spokesperson for Boston University told The Boston Globe.
The inquiry also comes shortly after layoffs at the center. Kendi recently laid off about 20 employees, more than half the center’s staff, the university confirmed last week.
