"It's the white professors who can't get tenure for hook or crook, but the black professors get hired as full professors with tenure," said Bob Russ, an English professor at Livingstone College in Salisbury, N.C., one of three white plaintiffs in a case that could go to trial this fall. Russ, who was twice denied tenure and notified in December that his contract would not be renewed, said a review of academic programs conducted in the early 1990s demonstrates how Livingstone set out to systematically remove whites from leadership positions. The review recommends naming black professors to replace several white departmental leaders.Notations in the margins include "bring in black Ph.D chair," "hire black chemist" and "build up science and math (black)." Russ said the notations were written by Barbara Brown, a black woman who was vice president for academic affairs at the time.
