Terri Ginsberg, a teacher at North Carolina State University was blocked
form gaining tenure following her screening a Palestinian film, Ticket
to Jerusalem. Senior faculty stated that Dr. Ginsberg’s comments caused
them to worry that members of the audience would perceive the Film Studies
and Middle East Studies programs as “biased.” Shortly thereafter,
Dr. Ginsberg was forced to resign from the Middle East screening series
that she had helped curate; she also went from being the favored candidate
for a tenure-track position to being denied so much as an interview.

Despite this clear violation of Terri’s First Ammendment rights North
Carolina courts have turned down hwer case. We usrge everyong to sign
an open letter to North Carolina Supreme Court urging them to hear Terri’s

the open letter
