Geraldo Rivera announced Sunday that he resigned from his fellowship position at Yale University after the Ivy League school decided to rename a college named after 19th-century Vice President John C. Calhoun because of his support for slavery.
Mr. Rivera announced on Twitter that he officially resigned as an associate fellow of Calhoun College, which has been renamed to honor trailblazing computer scientist Grace Murray Hopper.
Yale University students will celebrate Black History Month by cheering the founding of the violent Black Panther Party — with their own “Black Panther Party.”
The shindig, to be held on campus the school’s African-American House (known as Af-Am House), and sponsored by the African American Cultural Center is designed to celebrate the Black Panther organization’s 50th anniversary, and to help students at the school come face-to-face with the history of black activism.
Details of the party have not been released and Yale did not respond for requests for comment.
