Nikole Hannah-Jones is interviewed at her home in New York on Tuesday, July 6. The Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist had been chosen as the Knight Chair in Race and Investigative Journalism at the University of North Carolina, the school announced in April. But despite a recommendation by the tenure committee, her tenure was initially denied by the UNC board of trustees.

She ended up rejecting the offer, and she will instead teach at Howard University in Washington, DC. John Minchillo/AP
