Ward Churchill, the controversial academic who once headed up the ethnic studies program at the University of Colorado Boulder and who once described the victims of the 9/11 bombing at the World Trade Center as “little Eichmanns,” was invited to speak at the Claremont colleges near L.A on November 14th.
Churchill was fired from his position at CU Boulder after a long legal battle. His career came under scrutiny following the “little Eichmanns” comment. A subsequent university investigation found Churchill guilty of falsifying research and plagiarism. In addition, it was revealed that Churchill had lied in his claims to Native American ancestry.
