Dr. Anthony Monteiro, Advocate for Mumia Abu-Jamal, Dismissed
...
Associate Professor of African American Studies, Dr. Anthony Monteiro, Ph.D., a long-time advocate for Mumia Abu-Jamal, distinguished W. E. B. Du Bois scholar and community activist, has been dismissed from his position in Temple University's African-American Studies Department. It is clearly a case of a "retaliation firing," even though Temple administrators deem it simply "end of term" for Dr. Monteiro. For one report on the firing see this story at The Philadelphia Tribune. The National Call contests the dismissal, protests the retaliatory firing and seeks Dr. Monteiro's reinstatement.

Temple University's Dr. Anthony Monteiro
WE UNITE with Philadelphia faculty members, labor, community and student organizations to call for the immediate reinstatement of Professor Anthony Monteiro as Associate Professor in African-American Studies. After Dr. Monteiro's 10 years of distinguished service in Temple University's historic Department, the first to offer a doctorate in African-American Studies, he has been informed that his contract will not be renewed, in a letter of Jan 6, 2014 from Dean Teresa Soufas of Temple's Liberal Arts College. No reason was given for dismissal of so highly respected a scholar, particularly for his Du Bois scholarship, but also in African American Studies, generally.
WE DENOUNCE AND DEPLORE this apparent violation of Dr. Monteiro's academic freedom and this disparagement of his dignity as scholar and person. In the absence of any reasons for Dr. Monteiro's dismissal, this refusal we believe must be labeled a "retaliation firing," and based on the following indicators:
Retaliatory and threatening moves against faculty by administrators have recent precedent at Temple, especially from this Dean. Professor Monteiro's dismissal came after he helped spearhead public campaigns that challenged the Dean's attempt to strip the faculty of autonomy in administering of its department. In particular, Dr. Monteiro helped defend public efforts to secure African American scholars to Chair the African American Studies department, in spite of the Dean's objection to the department's own proposed candidates.
...
Not only was no reason given for Dr. Monteiro's dismissal, administrators also appear to hold contempt for Dr. Monteiro's work on community issues of mass incarceration, public education, and police corruption. Following two major events organized by Dr. Monteiro on political prisoners, Mumia Abu-Jamal and Russell Maroon Shoatz, which drew large participation from the local Black community, Temple began to prohibit Dr. Monteiro from reserving campus rooms.

Dr. Monteiro's eminent record includes:
A distinguished publication record, featuring over 100 published articles and essays in varied journals. He is among the most frequently cited in his department, not only in African-American and Du Bois Studies, but also in political science, history, urban education, race and feminist studies, to name a few. Already, Monteiro has produced five articles on Nelson Mandela and Amiri Baraka, just since their recent deaths.
...
Although supporting Dr. Asante's appointment as Department Chair, Professor Monteiro, along with others, was himself also nominated for that role.
...
As a leader in Du Bois studies, the University of Pennsylvania selected Monteiro to bestow upon Du Bois its Emeritus Professorship in Africana Studies and Sociology. He is especially respected for his fresh theorization of Du Bois' Black Reconstruction in America as form of "historical logic."
Unusually strong student respect and supportat both undergraduate and graduate levels. Dr. Monteiro's Du Bois seminars are deservedly popular, as also his graduate course in Black Social and Political Thought. These draw students from multiple departments. In 2005 and 2007 he received merit points for scholarship and teaching. Understandably many of his students are in the forefront of today's struggle for his reinstatement.
Innovative Planning of University & Community Relationsin Temple's North Philadelphia community. Dr. Monteiro started the ongoing Free Saturday School, granting Temple students of many disciplines a vibrant interaction with the community. He leads neighborhood studies of Martin Luther King's work, and consistently shows up at public events, often bringing his sociological expertise to bear on mass incarceration issues. Monteiro thus embodies the Department's own commitment to linking its discipline to "positive change in our communities" ("Mission," second paragraph).
An embodying for our time of Du Bois' tradition ofpolitical critique and public resistance in the face of systems of domination, whether in society or the academy. In this regard, we note his forming "The Radical Philosophy Circle" for Temple students, his decades of public support for innocent political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal (even hosting campus screenings of the award-winning documentary on Abu-Jamal, and featuring phone conferences with Abu-Jamal in his classes). He hosted at Temple a book party for Maroon the Implacable, a volume of essays by political prisoner, Russell Maroon Shoatz. Monteiro also organizes support for the community's political leaders, as with his conference in 2012, "Pam Africa: Our Revolutionary Daughter of the Dust."
WE SCHOLARS STAND VIGILANTLY BEHIND DR. MONTEIRO knowing that today, throughout the U.S. academy and nation, programs in African American and Ethnic studies are all too frequently attacked or neglected by small groups of deans, provosts and board members. These often use their power to foster or tolerate misrepresentation, harassment, repression and removal of reputable scholars of color and conscience - those most necessary for equipping us all with knowledge for promoting and guarding a truly just society.
The reinstatement of Dr. Anthony Monteiro with tenure is essential for Temple University now to safeguard its historic reputation in African American Studies.

"It's time to reconsider what African American Studies is in light of the new movement of Black Lives Matter and the police killings," Monteiro said.
He said such programs are being watered down.
"African American Studies is in crisis at many universities," he said.
