Jessica Krug: Professor who lied about Black resigning from George Washington University

The university said in a statement to CNN on Wednesday, “Dr. Krug has resigned from his post with immediate effect. For this semester his classes will be taught by other faculty members, and students in those courses will be offered this week. Additional information will be found. ”

It continued, “We hope that with this update our community can heal and start moving forward.”

Krugh, a history professor formerly specializing in Africa and Latin America, has not returned a request for comment.

Krug’s essay published on September 3 comes with backlash following backlash, with Krug admitting to naming him as a North African, African American, and “Caribbean vested Bronx blackness” during his adult life. He is, she said, actually White, Jewish and from Kansas City.

A student at GWU, who had a class with Krug, told CNN that she posed as an Afro-Latina woman from the Bronx.

Exactly one day after the essay was published, GWU announced that Krug would no longer be teaching for the semester, while the university reviewed the situation.

Krug apologized for his “continued appropriation for Black Caribbean identity”, stating that he was wrong, immoral, immoral, black and colonial.

“I am not a culture vulture,” she wrote. “I am a culture leech.”
