NOTRE DAME, Ind. — REAL News Michiana is questioning the motives of University of Notre Dame faculty and staff after receiving a picture of a poster promoting Critical Race Theory that was hung on a door on the campus. The poster, which reads, “We wouldn’t need critical race theory if America told the truth,” is posted on a door in the Department of Africana Studies, according to a source at the University.
RNM has reached out to both a media spokesperson for Notre Dame and the Director of Undergraduate Studies Maria McKenna. As of publication, RNM has not received a response.
According to the Notre Dame website, “Professor McKenna is an Associate Professor of the Practice holding a joint appointment in the Department of Africana Studies and the Education, Schooling, & Society program.”
Much of McKenna’s published work has focused on “educational equity and justice” in the K-12 public school system, where Critical Race Theory teachings have become a boiling point with parents and school districts. CRT teaches that everything should be examined through the lense of race and that people of color are inherently oppressed while white people are oppressors, solely based on the color of their skin.
Notre Dame is no stranger to the promotion of racist ideals. The University recently hosted Nikole Hannah-Jones for a speaking engagement. Hannah-Jones, a Notre Dame Alumna, authored the New York Times’ 1619 Project which was slammed by historians for perpetuating a false history of America. Hannah-Jones’ project claimed the founding of the United States started in 1619, not 1776, and is based solely on slavery and racism — not freedom and liberty.
