UHA Statement in Support of Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor

The Urban History Association strongly condemns the ugly harassment that has been directed against Princeton University professor Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor. We stand with Dr. Taylor, and most ardently support her right to speak uncensored and without threats or intimidation. An attack on any one member of our organization in this manner is a threat to all of us, and the UHA calls on other scholarly organizations also to condemn the vile behavior that has been directed at Dr. Taylor, as well as to stand with all scholars who find themselves similarly under assault for the ideas they hold or scholarship they produce.
