Dr. Monteiro's

The rally that Davis spoke in was in support of North Philadelphia resident and vocal critic against gentrification Dr. Anthony Monteiro.
Monteiro, a non-tenure track professor at Temple University since 2003, was dismissed this January from the African American Studies Department (AASD). Monteiro has been stripped of his professorship from a university which, looming over North Central Philadelphia, is entrenched between two of the poorest zip codes in the country.
Monteiro led protests on Temple's campus condemning Dean of the College of Liberal Arts Teresa Soufas' decision to appoint then-Vice Dean Jayne Drake, a white woman whose expertise was not in African American Studies as the head of the African American Studies Department.
Monteiro was fired because he challenged the authority of the AASD chairs and the administration of the College of Liberal Arts. During the spring semester of 2013, Monteiro led protests on Temple's campus condemning Dean of the College of Liberal Arts Teresa Soufas' decision to appoint then-Vice Dean Jayne Drake, a white woman whose expertise was not in African American Studies as the head of the African American Studies Department.
In addition to his disapproval of Soufas' appointment, Monteiro also called for the reappointment of Molefi Keti Asante as chair of the department.
In January, after several direct actions led to Asante's appointment as chair, Soufas informed Monteiro in a letter that his contract would not be renewed after June 30th.
They do not want Monteiro around because he uses his position to educate the community-specifically at his Saturday free school at the historic Church of the Advocate-rather than to marginalize and disenfranchise it.
Asante labeled Monteiro a "charlatan," and a "low-level purveyor of Marxism and anti-African ideals.
He ridicules the entire national campaign's "Call for Dr. Monteiro," whose signatories include Angela Davis, Chris Hedges, and Lewis R. Gordon.
Asante's use of a naked and anachronistic anticommunism to justify baseless attacks on Dr. Monteiro's integrity as a scholar and a teacher pose a dangerous threat to academic integrity and academic freedom...they reveal a deep-seated, prejudicial contempt that has been longstanding."

During a recent discussion about Islam and activism at a coffee shop in downtown Philadelphia, Tony Monteiro said many "persons of the book," whether they're of the Jewish faith, practice Christianity or follow the tenants of Islam, see faith "as a matter of one's personal upliftment, rather than the upliftment of the people."

Monteiro is a longtime social activist and former professor of African American studies at Temple University. He said religion has two sides: "the prophetic which is the side that advocates for justice and even revolution, and the religious side that is just personal, where there is no prophetic element."
He called the religious side the "opiate of the people, where people are encouraged to turn their backs on the world and focus on the (afterlife) world they hope to achieve. Monteiro, one of the principal organizers of last year's very successful, "Reclaiming Our Future: The Black Radical Tradition In Our Time," conference, said that on the other side of such a myopic or personal view concerning faith "is a side that's activist and what we call prophetic.
The Muslim leader that most personifies activism, Monteiro said, is Million Man March organizer and Nation of Islam leader, Louis Farrakhan.
Monteiro says Islam in the United States has this comfortable professional class of mostly immigrant Muslims, who don't want to rock the boat, and as a result may be "conspiring to undermine the potentiality of Muslim youth," he said. "And it's kind of a tragic thing when you don't see a lot of Muslim youth in these marches or at conferences like the Black Radical Tradition Conference.
In addition, Monteiro discussed Islam and activism in the context of the Western Hemisphere based African Diaspora.
"So Islam was part of that self liberation from all of the negativity that was a part of Western Christianity," Dr. Monteiro said.

"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.

Dr. Anthony Monteiro, a former professor of African American studies at Temple whose firing drew student protests last year, was also present.

Monteiro said. "This is a form of genocide. North Philadelphia is not just a location. It's a spiritual universe."
